In Development: We're making all kinds of Shuttles!
We now have 150 lovely hardwood shuttles cut out, everything from pick shuttles, small ones for tapestry or inkle weaving, tape loom ones and flat long rag ones. When these are all sanded, we'll move forward to some ski shuttles for people who do floor-loomed rag rugs. These are all walnut, some two-toned, mahogany, hard maple, and I saw a couple of ash and brazilian walnut ones pass through the bandsaw and drill, as well. Two or three days of sanding and fine finishing is ahead for these two bin fulls, but they will be ready to go to the two fiber shows we have in March.
The small ones will start at $4 and the five-piece ski shuttles will be about $25.
