Flying 8 Loom Project

It has been a long project, but I am just about ready to put my first warp on this home-made loom. It is a Flying-8 loom designed by Andreas Muller. Plans are available from his web page (just serarch for Flying-8 Loom and you will find it). It is an 8 harness countermarche loom that is made from common materials. It is designed to be a functional, production loom. It has features that I would have included if I were to design my own loom, that is why I chose this design. It has been fun and I can't wait to weave my first production warp. I am going to make some scarves with tencel and a crackle weave pattern. I'll post some pictures of the final product when I have them finished. I hope the picture is OK. I can't seem to get it to load in the proper orientation.



Nice job!!!! Have fun!  Why did you decide not to add the flyshuttle?

In reply to by sandra.eberhar…


This is still a work in progress. The flying shuttle will be added as soon as I am eager to do so. Right now, I was just wanting to get a small and narrow project on the loom so that I could do some weaving again after many years of inactivity.


What a great job! How's it weave?

I have the books but have not built yet... I hope to next year.
