A favorite loom for weaving narrow bands

One of my favorite forms of weaving is narrow band weaving.

This little loom is one of my most favorite looms ever.

I designed and built it over many years, starting with an antique wooden butter box that is older than I am.

My father in law used several of them in his workshop as drawers.

When he passed, we inherited one of them and slowly over the years, I have built this small loom with it.

Back in 2015, I posted about the beginnings of this little loom. Here’s the LINK to that post.

I am working hard on finishing up several new pieces to apply to enter them into a show.

I am using the narrow bands woven on this loom in some of the new pieces.

It makes me so happy to weave on this loom…. it feels like it came out of a fairy tale.

    Hello !
    I really like the small loom you created and understand how much you value it. Building your own tools to create things is so gratifying ! And this one looks beautiful and there is a nice story attached to it. It probably has magical powers indeed !
    Best wishes,

    I love this so much! I have done the most basic weaving and I would love something like this. Is something like this available for purchase, or are plans available? Even just for the mechanism?
