How to turn an Ikea computer desk into a loom stand with treadles

Materials: Ikea metal computer desk, table loom, scraps of lumber, 6 inches of 1/4 inch threaded rod, nuts, bolts, 2 zip or cable ties, scissors, paracord to tie the lamms to the treadles and the levers to the lamms, pliers, wrench, pipe cutter, 4 angle braces, drill

Description: A couple of months ago, I bought the neatest loom on Kijiji.

It’s a 2 harness Leclerc table loom, with a weaving width of 20 inches.

It’s a joy to weave on, but my tendons were grousing about the side levers and my back was honking at me.

I figured that there had to be a cheap and cheerful way to build a stand with treadles for it.

and VOILA!!!!! (happy dance)

I have just figured out how to do it! Wheeeeeeeee!

Here’€™s the video that I made about how to convert an Ikea computer desk into a loom stand with treadles.

Or check out my blog to see more of the loom stand with treadles .
