Another strange request from local museum, a ribbon loom. Kids weave ribbons through the ropes to show them how a real loom works. Built from salvaged old pine shelving and finished with linseed oil to give it a rustic appearance.

I like it a lot too! Your lucky to be contributing to learning like this. You should ask them to let you build a work bench next so kids can see how furniture is built. Cheers

Great educational project and I would not be able to tell this was not an original unit used years ago, nicely done.
