Warping Boards are the most commonly used measuring devices. The 14 yard warping board is one yard across. To withstand the strain of threads under tension, this board has the hardwood dowels tenoned, and are securely pressed into the frame.
We recommend hanging your warping board so the warp goes up and down. The closely set pegs should be across the top and the cross pegs will be on the right and left side. This way if you are winding long warps, you will be able to see if you miss pegs before you get to the point of cutting off the warp. See our blog post about this method.
