Simple Loom

The diagram below is a top down view of the 2x4, not to scale.

This is how I made a pair of looms.

Cut a piece of 2x4 about 6 inches long.
Drill two 2 inch diameter holes on the centre line, 1 ¾ inch in from each end.
With a table saw rip along the centre line.
With a band saw remove the remaining piece between the drilled holes.
Four, 5/8 inch round head screws.
