How to Build a Frame Loom, Best In Class!

Weave twice as fast with twice the uniformity and half the effort with DO9’s SUPER FRAME LOOM!

Please send us your build photos so we can post them and give you credit!!


Paired together with the previous iteration of this loom, the beater bar/spacing bar makes it a complete and total wonder loom!

My wife and I love the ease of warping a frame loom, but very much dislike the cumbersome process of in-and-out it takes with a large needle to weave it.  I decided to take a whack at building a frame loom with a stick that provides sheds in both directions, and also *now* a beater bar that additionally provides good spacing for the shed stick so there are no skipped warp threads when changing sheds. This thing works like a professional weaving loom, and it was free and only took two afternoons to leisurely slap together! With the added ease of the beater bar, it is a near perfect companion to those who don’t have so much time for long, arduous weaving project setup.

Our loom plans remove the need for a needling through weaves with a new double shed bar, a packing bar, and a spacing component that keeps your weave width right where it should be!

Happy building, and happy weaving! Cheers!


Thanks to Chuck Pappas for sending in a photo of his loom build from our video and diagram!

It looks like he has built his a bit longer than ours, and this is a good time to reiterate that you can make whatever size you want! Just remember that the total warp pegs need to be an even number, and the total shed bar pegs need to be an odd number! 


Thanks, Chuck!

Thanks to Kari H. for sending in a photo of her loom build from our video and diagram!

She is newer to weaving, and just look at her beautiful pieces she’s already done on her newly built loom! FANTASTIC!!

Beautiful work, Kari!
