If I can just snag a couple of minutes of a weaver's time, I'd really appreciate it  Smiley

I bought this for a couple of dollars at a yard sale a few years ago.  I got it with the idea of letting my brother play with it, but he's bored with it, and I've pulled it out.  Can anyone tell me if it's something I can really use for anything, or should I just put it in the goodwill pile?  I tried googling for information, but since I don't even know what kind of loom this is, I can't seem to get much information on it.  Thanks

It looks like it might be some sort of tapestry loom. I would guess that you warp it by threading yarn through the grooves on both sides but I'm not 100% on this since I can't see it in person. Look for information on children's tapestry looms and you might get a picture of one that would help you out. Try http://www.harrisville.com/html/pegloom.html. That's all I could find quickly, but it might give you an idea of how it works.

It looks like a large frame loom (fiberangel's right, they're commonly used for tapestry) - though I can't figure out what the two black bars are for.  The two slim sticks are for holding the weft and picking up warp threads.  There are several sites with instructions for (making &)warping/ weaving on a peg loom (which is similar)

what are the proportions?
