This creates two fork assemblies—one for each end of the loom base 20. Any connection may include screws, bolts, and adhesives, or other connectors.
  • The tall fork assembly 12 may attach at either end of the loom base 20 using the fork support bolt 32 and wing nuts 30 but may use any other nut to tighten at each end of the bolt which will hold the tall fork assembly 12 in place. The short fork assembly 14 may be attached in the same manner at the other end of the loom base 20. The plain macramé dowel 16 may attach by sliding through both fork assembly holes and securing in place by using the rubber O ring stoppers 28 but may use other ring style stoppers by applying each one to the end of the macramé dowel 16. The threaded warp bolt 18 may slide into place through the ¾ inch holes in the assembly forks (12 and 14) at each end of the loom and secured into place by using rubber O ring stoppers 28 but may use other ring stoppers at each end of the threaded warp bolts 16. The adjustable thread/cord attachment 22 may be permanently or detachably connected and may twist to create thread/cord tension by attaching the threads or cord to the screw in the adjustable thread/cord attachment 22 and twisting to desired tension and tightening into place by using the wing nuts 30 or other nuts on one or both sides.
  • An embodiment of the loom 10 may be assembled by sliding metal support bolt 32 through each set of loom forks (12 and 14) after being placed over each end of the loom base 20 then attaching wing nuts 30 on each end of the metal support bolts 32 and tighten. Once assembly is done the user may choose the plain macramé dowel 16 to create macramé jewelry and braiding or thread weaving and craft items. The dowel 20 may be replaced with the threaded warp bolt 30 and may create seed bead loomed jewelry and craft items.
  • An embodiment may be held comfortably between the knees or on the lap of the user while sitting in a comfortable place. Its angled design may allow easy to reach access, with plenty of work space under the project, to help provide proper tension control and easy view of the project. Embodiments may also offer the user multiple jewelry making technique options.
  • To use an embodiment, one may begin work on the loom 10 by placing the short fork 14 closest to your body. The tall fork end 12 furthest from the user's body would be the proper working direction. To use loom 10 for macramé jewelry, one may place the plain macramé dowel 16 into both fork ends of the loom 10. The user may cut a desired length of cord, and create loop or tie cord to macramé dowel, which becomes the anchor point for the cord to be braided, tied, or woven. One or more cords may be tied to the end of the loom 10 at the thread/cord attachment 22 to create the desired tension by twisting the thread/cord attachment 22, and then the wing nuts 30 tightened to hold in place while working on the project. The plain macramé dowel 16 can then be changed to the threaded warp bolt 18 for the purpose of seed bead loom weaving. One may tie a desired thread to the thread/cord attachment 22 then begin stringing threads over each threaded warp bolt 18, allowing each thread to lay in a separate groove in the warp bolt 18. One may then tie the threads onto thread/cord attachment 22 located at the other end of the loom 10 continuing until the desired amount of thread is in place, and then tying the thread end onto one of the thread/cord attachments.
  • To use an embodiment, a person may provide the loom 10 and choose either the plain macramé dowel 16 or the threaded warp bolt 18 to use for her desired jewelry, art or craft project. She would then attach her desired cords or threads to the adjustable thread/cord attachment 22. She would then find a comfortable place and position to sit and begin work on her desired project utilizing the comfortable angled design and easy to hold size in a manner that would suite her and give her accurate full view of her project as she works.
  • An embodiment of a seed bead looming technique may include the following steps. Place thread bolts in the loom and secure with rubber O rings at each end. Tie threads over screws at each end of loom with a slip knot. Wrap around screw several times to anchor the thread and then go across the loom to the screw on the opposite side and wrap around screw to anchor thread. Go back across loom placing threads into the thread guide and continue the process until enough thread is in place for your desired project. If more tension on threads is desired place wood braiding dowel behind threads at the end of the loom just above the screw.
  • An embodiment of a macramé technique may include the following steps. Place wood dowels in loom. Measure cord to desired length for your project and tie loop at the end of the cord. Slip loop onto dowel at the higher end of the loom. Pull center cord out and place beads onto cord then tie to the screw at the end of the loom. Use remaining cords to begin macramé knot tying of desired design. A paper clip can also be used as a hook for projects like braiding. Just bend into a hook shape and hook onto wood dowel as an anchor.
