Ruthanne designed these plans for making your own warping board.
This board will hold a 16 yard warp.
Eliminate the posts marked with an X and it will hold a 14 yard warp.
4 1×4 red oak boards 4 feet long
4 1 inch hardwood dowels – 3 feet long
8 1 1/4 inch wood screws
polyurethane varnish – satin finish
2- 40 1/4 inch
2 – 28 inch
4 – 16 3/4 inch – marked A
17 – 6 inch or 15 – 6 inch
Holes for the posts are drilled through the frame boards
Glued and screwed together from the back
(we had to grind down a 1 inch spade bit to fit the dowels)
Boards are overlapped with the short boards in front
and glued and screwed together from the back
with countersunk wood screws
Posts are bevelled at one end and glued in place.
Everything is sanded and given one coat of satin polyurethane finish
