Hey, can you make us a few beading looms? Uh, sure, OK. At least they aren’t asking me to buy cookies too, YET! Darn Girl Scouts :-)

Nice project! Are they using them for small scale business? The word “loom” really reminds me my first job at the Taiwanesee owned Textile Factory in my hometown….so nostalgic, so touchy…!

I think I’ve come accross with this design at firemountaingems, if I’m not mistaken.

Hey Ken How’s it going long time friend? Hard to believe how long we have been out of High School and woodshop class together. Cool projects for one of you little ones. I saw these on FB this morning. Good to make things for the Girl Scouts, but man I do love them Cookies. Thin Mints and the Peanut butter ones as well.

We might make it back to Michigan in January; I have an Uncle retiring from the Army after 30 yrs of service. I will call ya.

how did you make these? I am a avid beadier and my store bought loom is fading fast. I really dont want to go out and buy a loom that is $50+ when i could make it myself. these look exactly what i need. what kind of wood did you use and what kind of saw did you use?

they are plywood. I used a table saw, drill press, spindle sander, router table, hacksaw, miter saw, band saw, random orbital sander, a cordless drill and a grinder with a stone and a wire wheel. Best of luck…
