The stair treads are finally in the works. It remains to be seen if this warp ends up being treads: Having some doubts--mostly due to the weight of the woven fabric. I'm wondering if it's going to be hefty enough. True, I plan to paint the backs of them with Latex rubber--if indeed they become treads--and that will give them more substance. The only way to really find out is to finish one tread, take it off the loom, wash it and coat it with rubber. Then I'll decide if the rest of the warp will be treads, or just 4+ yards of nice fabric.
Fabric in this pic may look a little distorted because the web was relaxed when I snapped the pic.
