Tape Looms – Box Looms – Heddle Boards

I make tape looms; often they are called box looms. My tape looms have a workman-like quality to them; like they were made on the farm in the 18th or 19th Centuries (1700s through 1800s). Some folks create very nice tape looms with a fit and finish that rival fine furniture; mine are more like folk art items for sure.

If you want a particular loom made, feel free to contact me.

Box Loom This darkly stained pine tape loom is based on the well-known loom in the collection of the Hershey Museum of American Life in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

I incorporated a couple of vintage bobbins in building this loom that were used in a now defunct textile mill in Alamance County, NC.

I made this for my girlfriend who makes straps for my horn work and joins me at many of my events.

Bennett-Place-Tape-Loom
This tape loom was made from recycled materials in an “antique” style using distressed wood and paint.
I gifted it to Bennett Place State Historic Site here in Durham, NC for their living history programming.
