Tell us about yourself!
Good one - well done. Interestingly a friend has had a similar experience here in the UK with bugs coming out of sycamore he's used for facings - the holes are now a 'feature'!One thing to watch please, and it applies to all writers of Instructables, is that these web pages are read internationally and things like 'HF' mean nothing outside the US - OK google and I get 'Harbor Freight', but whereas we in say Europe are happy enough to translate inches to millimetres, abbreviations like this can be a problem.
Two concerns - many of my coats do not have hanging loops big enough for 'pegs' like these. And then in my book, the 'pegs' should have well rounded edges to protect the loops.
Be careful about Streptocarpus as they droop their leaves if they get too much water. "Oops I've not watered enough, let's give it some more !!". No, they come from dry South Africa.
Nice bit of workmanship and quite difficult to do as a one off. I went off to look at the 'antique' hand bellows I got from my parent's house. Interesting that if you put a finger over the pipe hole, air leaks all over the place when squeezed, but as bellows they work fantastically - the pipe is so much bigger than the little gaps. The reason is that the leather is just held by tacks at 1" spacing so maybe it is worth considering avoiding gluing as that will make it near impossible to repair if the leather develops a hole. Also there is a leather cord through the handles preventing them being pulled to far apart.

I question the logic behind this. The whole point of 'toe-nailing' as I see someone calling it, is to join one timber orthogonally onto another - with this method the nails from both sides go into the base timber at right angles and can therefore pull out easily in a straight line. If the nails are straight and are hammered in at an angle they interlock in the base timber because they are at an angle to one another, and joint is very difficult to pull apart.
