Hey folks, I just wanted to share about a cardboard frame project I am doing.
Since I needed a new computer bag, I decided I would try to weave one directly on a cardboard frame. I wanted to make the bag using my twining techniques, and I know I tend to weave tightly - and need a correspondingly tight warp setup as well.
So... I found some extremely heavy cardboard - book binding board, I think, and constructed a 3 dimensional box about the size of a laptop. One side of the box was constructed to extend longer, because that section would be woven to be the fold over flap.
The included pictures should give you an idea of how I constructed the frame and warped it.
More details about this still unfinished project are shown on my project page. (www.weavolution.com/node/7433)
I do have the weaving for the main part of the bag almost completed except the bottom and the finishing. I am now weaving on the flap.
