Table weaving loom plans,plan toys victorian dollhouse,wood patterns for reindeer,how to build an outdoor corner bench with storage - For Begninners
I have been planning on making a loom I can use specifically for tablet weaving (aka card weaving), but hadn't gotten around to it. You could add a nut at the place where the two clamping boards meet then countersink them into the upper clamping board.
I also like to move my twist every few turns so I put each corner of the loom on blocks ( May add some kind of legs later) which allows me to push down the twist to save more weaving area.
This was not entirely off the cuff design- I have been looking at pictures of tablet weaving looms for a long time.
I find with my inkle loom that the angle is not steep enough for my comfort and the distance not great enough to weave anything substantial before I have to wind forward and or deal with too much twist. I have wound mine around an extra shuttle too, and used a stretchy cotton, like those used with the potholder looms.
My earliest plans for my board included a set of tensioner blocks or rods, like you use for backstrap weaving.
