Well, this is all that I got done this evening. It doesn't seem like a lot, but it took me from 4 to almost 1 am. Looks pretty good though, and I am happy with the way it is turning out.

Oh! Holy cow! I've wanted one of those looms *forever*. I just stumbled across your blog and that's the first thing I see! Gorgeous work!! Now I have to fight the urge to go buy a loom!!

Jean, my husband cut the wood for mine and made the triangle, and I drilled all the holes and pounded in the nails. They are very simple to make, if you have even the smallest amount of woodworking ability. A hand saw, a drill and a hammer, lots of little nails, and six brass screws. I think the cost of this materials here was like $40. Here is a web address for instructions as to how to put one together. The only added suggestion I have is that if you are planning on using fine yarns, you need to space the top row of nails more like 1/4th of an inch rather than 1/2" apart. http://www.waynesthisandthat.com/triloom2.htm
