    My wife not only spins and knits, but she loves to weave. She brought a stick shuttle home that she paid $15 for.... since I appreciate wood craft, I of course wanting to pick it up and look at how it was designed. AND THEN......... I dropped it on the ground and busted one of the ends off. So I decided to make my own. Once I figured out the design dimensions, I can now crank these out for pennies on the dollar.
