Look at it!

I didn’t mention to many people that when I went to Schacht headquarters in September that I hatched a plan to get myself a Baby Wolf. I wasn’t sure it would actually happen but then I got a phone call that they were putting the finishing touches on it. It arrived late Wednesday afternoon. I know you’d rather see photos then hear me blather on.

That’s the quick photo I took before I dived in getting her set up.
Look at those shafts:

And the Treadles/Lamms:

The treadles make me all weak in the knees.

She’s a special order in Black Walnut, Cherry, Maple, and a few pieces of Oak thrown in there too. I’ve talked to Jane at Schacht and they’ll do one more for me like this if anyone is interested. They don’t have a lot of Black Walnut parts so there is only one more that can possibly done

    My, that is beautiful . . . and this is coming from someone who doesn’t know much about looms. ;o) I’m a sucker for beautiful hardwoods. Hey, speaking of which, have you seen the figured maple Robin wheel?
