So, I don’t know what made me think that making a video about restoring a loom was going to be a one-video process. I think this is going to be a series. This might end up being a whole summer series of fixing up this loom.
On today’s Lo Meets Loom video, I want to tell you about my beautiful Leclerc Fanny loom and why I’m sitting underneath it. I got this loom a few months ago, in the dead of winter, and I had bought it used online from Ottawa. It was taken apart, disassembled by the owner and then packaged and travelled all the way across Canada, here to Vancouver. My intention was always that when the weather warmed in the summer, I was going to disassemble the loom once again, refinish everything, and then put it back together. Now, I’m looking at that entire process and… um, I just want to say “welcome to my woodworking channel”!
I wonder, what would you do in this situation? Would you just wash the loom, try to make it un-sticky and just keep going. Or would you sand it all down and make it super nice and pretty, refinished and gorgeous? Let me know in the comments!
