Here are the two shuttle rests I made for my loom. They are held onto the loom with C-clamps, one on the right side and one on the left side. They are different sizes only because I found the pieces in the odd lots at Home Depot and I simply guessed what size needed.

The one on the left is larger and holds fairly easily three shuttles. The one on the right and, as you can see, easily holds only two shuttles. Sitting on it are two pattern shuttles. Sitting on the web itself are two binder shuttles. It is fairly simple to keep these four shuttles in order.

I never answer the phone when I am in the midst of a sequence.

Simple and ingenious! Thanks for this -I know I shall find your shuttle rests idea useful for my own weaving.

I'm glad you found this useful. Knowing you, I suspect you will fine tune it to be a much better tool.
