At the height of the rubber band craze, my son decided that he wanted a loom too. Well, at the time, there were none to be found. So it was up to me to make him one. I found a chunk of wood about two feet long, hammered in a bunch of nails. The nails weren't strait, they didn't line up and it was heavy, however at the end of that board, I made a circle with the nails and drilled a hole. All the kids in the neighborhood wanted to use that loom, not because of the full size bracelet you can make with it without having to reposition it, but because of the little detail at the end of the board that I added. The kids loved that it made some of the more harder bracelets easier to do. So I made a pocket version of that little detail. Here is how I made it.

Step 1: Gather up some stuf

I used a chunk of wood that I had lying around (1.5" X .75" X 6"); however just about any size will do; six pushpins, a pencil, and a half inch drill bit.

Have a quick video of the weaving process for those weaving challenged?
<p>I'll see what I can do. Might take some time though.</p>
really cool and easy to make
<p>Thank you. Not to mention, it costs next to nothing.</p>
<p>I love this! I have a sturdy spool knitter that I think this will work on! It looks like it will be MUCH easier than using the flat looms made for rubber bands! </p><p>Thank you!</p>
<p>Thank you for the love. It truly is easy to use.</p>
That is awesome! My brother really wants a loom like me but doesn't have the money right now! I figure ill make him one of these now! ;D THX A LOT! (Not being sarcastic there!) lol)
