What are you most proud of? I'm not an experienced woodworker, but I managed to design and build this in a day without help - although I got my husband to neaten up the cut-out corners with his chisel because I can't saw straight!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Due to inexperienced woodworking, the corner cut-outs weren't identical, so it fits together better in one particular way. The corners are colour-coded with permanent marker to help me assemble it quickly. I didn't seal the wood - you may want to apply wood wax or varnish. I wouldn't recommend stain or wool oil, in case it comes off on your yarn.

I like that it can be stored by dis assembling. It could store in with the heddles etc. In a tub type bag. I think I can do this without any help. Good job.
