Staining a New Acquisition

A tiny new rigid heddle loom just arrived today.

New Ashford Sample It Loom being stained prior to assembly.

It requires assembly, but that gives me the opportunity to customize it with wood stain and Varathane. The colour I chose is "English Chestnut" by Minwax.

I hope to not only use this tiny loom to make narrow items like scarves, but also to teach my six year old  granddaughter another form of weaving. She's already doing very well at Inkle band weaving.
