Any advice anyone could give me would be much appreciated. I bought a loom through Craigslist a little over a year ago, because it was less than a hundred dollars. It looks to be about 50 years old, and possibly home made or from a kit. It's a four harness loom. I've bought some books and have been reading up a bit to try to ease my intimidation, I think weaving might be a bit ambitious for me, but I've always, ALWAYS wanted to do it.

Anyway... I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips about a warping board... is it possible to make one? are there patterns for them? or are there reliable internet sites that sell them? I had been planning on taking a class through the Weaver's Guild, but I've moved too far away to be able to do that, and I don't know any weavers where I now live.

thanks for your help!

Here is a link to a site with instructions on making your own warping board.

Here are pics of the warping board my husband made me last year for Christmas.  Very similar to the instructions from the url given by mountain_waif but Paul did not overlap the ends.

Make sure you make it with a hard wood (not pine!) so it has strength!

I saw something about using pvc to make a warping board, has anyone tried it? My kromski has the warping board on the backside of the loom, and supposedly you could use the warping feature while the loom was dressed, but I would feel very nervous.
