Love Letter 3/4

Dear First (Loom) Love,

You've changed. You're different. There's something about the wood. If you could see, you're not the loom that started. [...] It takes just a bit more and we're done!

The cherry wood was a great addition. Strong, golden bronze. It holds your core up like an Adonis. (Ok, perhaps I was trying to make you into my other love, my bad. But see how beautiful it looks on you?) You fold up nice and small now too!

And that brake - Oh. My. Gosh. Talk about revolutionizing the experience of an ancient art form (that's already been revolutionized and automated, but whatevs). I can't wait to try you out.

xoxo
Tara

p.s. Thanks to Baird Brothers for this gorgeous cherry and Mielkes Fiber Arts for the brake!
p.p.s. Extra points for guessing the musical reference.

Still in pieces, but oh so close!

Oh, brake. Look at you! So beautiful! Working so well! I had help from a friend (THANK YOU DAN) to get a hole drilled through the center of the bracket. I used the drum brake from the Schact Mighty Wolf, but had to alter the configuration a bit due to the geometry of my loom.
