Book of "weaving a middle age tapestry" is finally done

Unfortunately book is available only in Finnish. I will put it here for everybody to download free. I have the copyright for the text, but since I do not see that I could ever get money back from printing this book, I think it is better to let people whom are interested, to have it free.

Tillering the bow

I have been tillering the bow. It starts to be quite good already.


 I ´have also steam bended it to get it straight. It was bending little too much to the side. In picture you can see it pressed to turn it little over the straight line after steaming.

scraping the bow

I finally get the back of the stave in to same growth ring.
Next I marked the line of the belly. Width is already close of the correct, or the level where to begin tillering.

old projects again

Now, when the tapestry is done, I have continued to make a bow and to embroider a silk wallhanging.

I took a better picture from tapestry. Size of the TV is 44". I have also written last pages of the tapestrybook. I still have to make a documentation of tapestry, while I still remember things better.
