Got shuttles?

I had 2 shuttles that I made from a piece of cedar, this next project will require more than that.
Tablesaw,
Drill press,
Band saw,
dremel and sander.
Okay, I've got shuttles; the 2 cedar, 2 oak,3 poplar and 9 makore. It's a good thing that save all my scraps of lumber.

so you build shuttles now? Does NASA know about you new project here? Honestly i have no idea what you are building there?

Zing, they're for the loom. I've taken up rag rug weaving. You know I needed another hobby;P

Rita said...

Oha, wieviele von diesen Schiffchen brauchst du denn??? Kann die Lady sich nicht einfarbige Teppiche wünschen???

Lars said...

Rita, ein einfarbige Teppich zu weben wäre doch langweilig. 11 Schiffchen soll aber reichen.

So as far as i can see from this conversation you need a shuttle for each color yes? I have to look up how that works ... weaving is a complete D zone in my personal knowledge ... i just googled a loom so i know at least what these shuttles are used for now.

Braver Jung Zing! See, you already understand that 1 for each color is what I need;)
