In addition to instruments I also make and supply handmade leather bellows and bags.
My standard pattern of bellows is 10" in length with a 10" draw. This is a very good size for Scottish smallpipes and Border pipes, they are even capable of powering a full set of Uilleann pipes. Other sizes or shapes are available and can be custom designed. My standard wood for the clappers is Cherry, but I also keep Walnut, Curly Maple, Mahogany, Oak, and Poplar on hand. The leather gusset is made from a fine upholstery grade hide that has been treated to be airtight without need for seasoning. My bellows design is unique in the way that I have laminated the gusset leather to create defined folds when closed. This allows the bellows to have a smooth pumping action that results in an easier to play instrument.

I have several leather color combinations available, and can custom fit a bag to suit the pipers needs. I make my bags using a specially tanned leather hide that is airtight and does not require seasoning for the life of the bag. Note: these bags are intended for dry-blown bellows pipes only. If you require a bag for mouth-blown use, I can supply a synthetic or synthetic hybrid bag.
