I was asked to make a weaving bench for my niece as she recently got a loom. Had no idea what a weaving bench looked like so I started searching the best resource, Lumberjocks.com. Tom “thejaz” at least got me started with his post; http://lumberjocks.com/projects/52041

Chose quarter sawn sycamore with a walnut key so it would somewhat match a hope chest I built her a couple years ago. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/66724

Seat is 12”x 36” between the supports and 42” wide overall. Seat supports are made so she can choose rocker style or flat and are adjustable from 19” up to 31”. The side uprights are 36” high. The trestle is 1 3/4” x 4” and secured with 1/2” x 6” walnut key. Finished by rubbing in tung oil finish, top coating with lacquer, then hand rubbed out.

My wife added a couple baskets to hold her shuttles, scissors and other tools close at hand.
