I just finished assembling my loom last night after putting a few coats of a sealant and sanding between each coat. I would recommend some sort of seal as the loom does come in pieces and without any finish. I used a clear matte seal and it looks the same just with a protective layer! The assembly instructions were clear and it didn't take me long at all to put everything together without any issues. I am so excited to begin my weaving journey and plan to warp a test project this week.
This is a great loom! It's a great size to make all different sizes on and it's not to big that it would be hard to work on. It's very easy to work on and it's very easy to put together. I would recommend this loom to anyone who is looking to get a bigger size loom. The gears and pawls hold very well. It's beautifully made and very strong and sturdy. I absolutely love Ashford looms and recommend them to everyone!
I was very excited to get this loom, and it has already far exceeded my expectations. It's beautifully made and a pleasure to use. I had narrowed down my choices but wasn't sure exactly which to purchase, and the staff at Paradise was knowledgeable and generous with their time in advising me. Quick ship, too. Thanks for making the process such a pleasure!
My purchase was followed by a surprisingly quick shipping time, perfect packaging, great value, courteous and helpful personnel. I certainly recommend this store. Planning a trip to Spokane to see it in person.
