Default The loom bench and a new toy....

I finished the loom bench I promised my wife.
It's more of the mahogany I made the side table I posted a little while
ago. The brackets has a curve so the seat cab rock back and forth for
comfort. The box under the seat is for shuttles and such.

Oh and the last picture is of the new toy that was delivered on
Saturday. After two table saw accidents (I didn't loose anything) in 15
years my wife and Decided to make the investment.

A little note about the company that delivered it, Fries, Beall & Sharp
in Lorton VA, delivered it to the front door of my garage and put the
box right where I wanted it.

Looks nice.

Shouldn't there be some padding on that thing? I don't think my butt could
take very many hours sitting on a flat board.

An interesting project! Looks well done.

I have two questions:

[1] Is the design traditional or one you and your wife worked out?

[2] Did you also build/design the loom?

I tried similar reasoning like that the last time I had a female friend over
for a barbeque. Told her that I do the barbequing and she does the cleanup
afterwards.

Still got the bruise on my shoulder...

Morris,
The basic design is traditional we are not sure about the rocker part or
handles.

I had nothing to do with the loom. My wife bought it from a woman in MA.
A local loom building there made it.
I will be making more harnesses for it so she can do more complex patterns.

The rocker seat is an intriguing design feature. Even tho I'm not a
furniture (or loom) designer/builder, it's the kind of thing that
makes me think: "I wish I'd thought of doing something like that!"

Please post pictures - this is fascinating stuff!

I am new to this, but I love the loom bench and would like to know if you sell the plans for it? Please advise me if I'm wrong in asking this... would like for my hubby to build one.
