Materials & tools needed for tufting frame

First, we will introduce the materials and tools needed to make a tufting frame. Please look for it at your local home center.

    • Wood (this time I used white wood studs cut into 2 pieces of 700 mm and 2 pieces of 546 mm)
    • Carpet gripper (cut to fit 2 sides of 600mm and 2 sides of 546mm)
    • Screw (standard 3.8 x 75)
    • Round nail (19mm)
    • 2 heatons
    • Phillips screwdriver (or electric screwdriver)
    • Kiri (not shown in the image)
    • Saw (not shown in the image)
    • hammer

*Carpet grippers are often not sold at home centers. At our physical store, we sell each piece individually, and at our online shop, you can purchase a set of 12 x 30cm pieces .

How to choose wood

This time, I chose white wood studs with a thickness of 27 mm to install a carpet gripper that is about 25 mm wide. When choosing wood at a home improvement store, the key is to choose one that is as straight and undistorted as possible.

You can request wood cutting at large home centers for a fee, so take advantage of this and save time.

Why use carpet grippers?

You can also make a frame by driving in dowels or panel pins to stretch the fabric, but using a carpet gripper is easier and faster, so it is recommended for DIY beginners.

About the size

This time, I made it at 60cm x 60cm for beginners. Depending on the thickness of the wood used, the maximum size of a rug that can be made is approximately 45cm x 45cm. We recommend the frame size to be divisible by the tufting cloth you purchase!

example)

The size of the tufting cloth required for the 60cm x 60cm size is approximately 66cm x 66cm, which is larger than the frame size. You can use 9 pieces of 2m x 2m tufting cloth sold at our store.

Once the tufting cloth is strung, it is necessary to complete the work inside the cloth, so start by making a few small frames to get a feel for the process of making a rug.

Precautions when creating

We recommend that two people create the tufting frame. Also, be careful when working to avoid injury.

arrange

Making the top and bottom pieces of wood a little longer will give it more stability. Also, when making a slightly larger frame, try reinforcing it with L-shaped metal fittings to increase durability.
