It comes unfinished and un-assembled, so I get a bonus project of getting to pick out a stain, and put it all together. I say this with all sincerity... I love putting stuff together!
But then comes the tough part... actually 'warping' the loom - putting the yarn through all the little slots on the reed.
Once I had warped the loom I was off and weaving. The actual mechanics are pretty straight forward, and I watched a you-tube video to get a couple hints. It's still very much a first project... the sides are sloppy and I've discovered that the reed I'm using is too big for the weight of yarn I chose so it's going to be a bit loosely woven when all is said and done. But that won't necessarily be a bad thing... we'll just have to wait and see.
