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.
