Here are my new boat shuttles. I am still working on a boat shuttle for an inkle loom. It will need to be rather thin with a beating edge. Might work on this today as well. Anyway here are my new handmade boat shuttles.

More Handmade Weaving Boat Shuttles
I finally found a great source for hardwood besides oak and poplar not far from me called Hardwood products. I made the trip on Tuesday and bought some Tiger/curly Maple, Hard Maple, Black Walnut and African Mahogany. Some 2 inches thick which is perfect for shuttles. I've made a new 9 inch shuttle out of Oak, Pine and now Black Walnut. Today I'm planning on making one in Hard Maple.
