I wanted to share pictures of my little tapestry loom. I wanted one that had actual haresses and a reed, but that was also foldable and therefore portable. I couldn't find one, so I built it!
The wood is mahogony, except for the round beams, and was given to me by a friend. I didn't have a source for the beams in mahogony, so I had to use pine.
The reed is held up with springs, but I detached them to let the reed down for this picture. Normally, the reed sits directly under the frame that holds the harnesses. I used string heddles to reduce the weight. The weaving width is 24 inches, and it weighs about 25 pounds.
