This is a 16 inch rigid heddle loom with an 8 dent reed. You can make it as narrow as 8 inch or even wider by removing or adding middle reed pieces . Make the loom as long or short as you want based on your size and your work space. You will need 7/8", 7/16", and 1/2" dowel rods also #6 x 1/2" wood screws in addition to the printed parts.
I originally made this to sell, but shipping them proved to be more of a headache than I cared to deal with right now.Please don't be mean and try to sell this unless you want to send me a cut of your earnings for designing it. If you make this and enjoy it please consider dropping a buck or two my way - https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=9ZKG4R88F6HK8
I'm not great at writing up instructions but I will include rendered sample pictures to help with the assembly. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
If you need help learning how to warp a rigid heddle loom check out this great video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fa1WrHOTjxY
To simplify the weaving and warping process I changed the standard rigid heddle loom design. Tie your warp strings to one of the dowel rods instead of the warping stick like shown in the video. There will be no need to add strips of cardboard while rolling up your project because the knots will be hidden between the two dowel rods.
Because of my design changes I added a tension bar that keeps your work at a constant height instead of moving up and down as you roll up your project.
