I got a new loom last night.
I don't know much about it because it's still in pieces in my car.  Tongue But's it's a 32 inch LeCleric 8 shaft. I'm so excited. I need to get it spruced up a little before using which leads me to a question.....
The whole thing has been sanded- I guess there were assembly marks in big black sharpie. After looking at the top of the loom, which hadn't been sanded, it looks like it had a nasty yellowing varnish on it. Thank you for getting rid of the ugly varnish, but now I need to do 'something' to finish it. I also live in colorado which is really dry- I can already feel the wood is pretty dry. My thought is to rub it down with tung oil to give some moisture back and then rub it all down with wood wax as a finish. Oh, I'm also thinking about murphys oil soap first to get the garage grime off it. I <3 murphys. Good idea, bad idea, better ideas?
I'm feeling the weaving bug biting again. It's been years since I've done anything. The kids are finally big enough!
