I have been thinking about getting a bigger loom for continuous strand weaving. The prices on them can get quite expensive over 300$. I know for a weaving loom that is not a lot.. but still. I know somewhere I can get one made in pine for a little over $100. I checked with some other folks that have experience and they recommended against pine, since it is a soft wood.
I don't see them used much on the web.. or that would be an option. I am thinking of trying to make one myself. It seems that the wood costs should not be terrible. The construction seems relatively straight forward. The hardest part might be drilling all of the holes.
