Well my loom came in yesterday, and I'm putting it together today with the help of my friend Robin. Of course there are instructions that need instruction on how to read the first set of instructions. It is a 48" loom, and the wood is nude or is that natural? Everything has to be waxed as it is being assembled, and then I'll need to buy some soft furniture wax to finish it off. What are some brand names of fine furniture waxes? Anyone still use furniture wax? Pledge isn't what I'm looking for. I'll need to go get something in the morning, so I can finish the loom. I hope to find a yarn store sometime in the next week, and see just how much it is going to cost to set up a small inventory of warp and weft yarns. Please send me some patience.
