Very cool. Looks useful to make fastening rope or such of any precise size you need.

I see some fancy hatbands in your future.... :D that loom looks like a tricky thing to put together to get it weaving right.

Lenn, very nice, and way more traditional than the inkle loom I built. Great for making garters, powder horn straps, tumplines and other obscure sundries from long ago ...

Thanks gents, takes a little practice two people weaving is easier.
Head bands are a good idea but as usual i make things just to say i did it is more important than using it. :)
