Did you have to glue any of the parts together, or can it be entirely disassembled? That would be ideal, because then I could put it away when I wasn't using it!

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that part.  The pieces fit together pretty snugly but can come apart for storage (small apartment necessitates storable craft equipment!)  I've been thinking that if I find that it needs more stability I can use bolts or screws threw the joints.  That way it can still be taken apart.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Thanks so much for the tutorial! this is awesome and I am definitely going to give it a shot. I just made a backstrap loom which has been working for me.

Do you think you could get a closer shot of the heddle? Im still a bit confused on it.

This is a great idea! About the heddle (or the reed?- heddle lifts up warp strands, reed beats down weft) you can make good heddles from string, tied so that there is a smaller loop in the middle for warp to go through. You can also use a wide comb as a beater. But what you did is GREAT.

Thank you so much! I'm sitting here with my craptacular cardboard loom and I knew there had to be a better way to get started without having to sell my vital organs on the black market. You're crazy inventive- in a very good way
