Quite a few members of our family got into weaving. So restoring an antique floor weaving loom was the first project. Here is the second. These are Inkle Looms. They are used for the weaving of belt type of things.

I used 3/4” plywood and 3/4” dowel.

Here are some inkle looms build by other LJ’s:

Nice Job. Half my family spins yarn and either weaves, knits, or crochets . If you get to spinning wheels let me know!! :)

Thanks Jim, it’s like giving a fishing pole to the kids instead of fish….

Rick, you crack me up, I am glad you had that inkling. Oh and no I do not want medication for anything.

Eric, I think we live in the same family. Half the stuff under our tree this year was crochet or knitted.

Be well, Pb.

Here is an inkle loom all charged up with yarn, just to have an idea of how this thing works.

Lovely. I like the organic curves and the extendable arm. A fine addition to the small family of LumberJock Inkle Looms! :-)

Thanks Scott for the complement. I did check out your loom too as you can see.

These looms were built to order for the family by the family..
