My wife want (or need !!) a bead loom

I go to my shop to watching my scrap wood and then I go to my bench to work

I use pine, padauk and beech

The pic #3 is the result of two works

Comments welcome

Thanks for looking

I agree, looks nice, but not sure what it is used for or how to use it.

I know nothing about beading, but it sure looks great and I guess your wife must be pleased.

Your lucky thats all YOUR wife wants -
Mine wants everything and she wants it now.
Its no good being complacent because she will have changed her mind before it arrives.
What was good enough yesterday will be totally unacceptable tomorrow.
I (and all other men) fail to realise the importance of shoes and handbags and nice places to store them.
and while everyone is entitled to an opinion, hers is the opinion they are entitled to…..

Jack, how does she stretches the lines and keeps them stretched while working? I’d suggest you to use a hinges and some sort of threading rod to keep them stretched.

Nice work, both of you! Been way too long for me to remember how this works. Nice to be able to use those scraps! Thanks for sharing.

It’s a Bead Loom, as we call it.
I try to make sure my wife gets whatever she wants.
That way I get no trouble when I want something.
Within reason, that is.
