Inspired by trying to thread heddles on a 4-shafter ......... 

The design uses a lot of nudging, a little stacking and composites, using some of the exciting extended capabilities of the FontStructor.

The font's name is Maori and means "weaving".

This font is as finished as I need to have it at the moment. I'll add a few more glyphs later.

Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Raranga” is now a Top Pick.
Comment by Rob Meek (meek) Thu, 10th November

One of your finest creations with stunning FS technique.

Comment by architaraz Fri, 11th November

Love it!

Comment by laynecom Fri, 11th November

Meek, thank you for this new TP --- and for the new FontStructor :) Without it this font's curved slots alone would have required about 28 px height for just one of the eyelet slopes to get the effect I wanted.

@ architaraz & laynecom: thank you for your praise, it means a lot as you both belong to the established skilled true designers here :)

Nice work. I like the way some letters - all capitals - venture into descender territory. Occasionally, there is partial overlap between the "L" and "J", or between the "L" and "Y", however. I would consider having a shorter "L" as alternate for such situations. Congratulations for the Top Pick. 10/10

Comment by Frodo7 Fri, 11th November

@ Frodo, thank you for appreciation and good observations :) A "LL" is on the LC "L", a shorter "L" on the LC "k", a new tail on the "A" to give a better look when used before LL.

Comment by Aeolien Fri, 11th November

It has a new "J", a few more useful punctuation marks and symbols. It's finished as far as I want to have it, so grab it if you can use it, while it's available ;)

@Aeolien Can somebody give me ideas for my new font "Apliciplicititations!"

@ brynda: please talk about and ask questions about your own fonts only in the comments areas that belong to your own fonts. Comments regarding members' fonts belong with their fonts ;)

What the .. is this "3" man , it looks sh*t ! but the rest is great !!!

Comment by Romain1 Mon, 21st November

A beautiful, stylish and fluid font. Congrats on the top pick, fully deserved. I do agree with Romain1 about the number 3, though not the way he expresses himself. I also wonder if the upper case M should be rounded at the top right in keeping with other letters. A super font.

Comment by wicci Tue, 22nd November

@ wicci: thank you. I have changed the top of the M, is this better? @ Romain1 : I improved the "3" you disliked and imagine you'll comment favourably.

Comment by Aeolien Wed, 23rd November

0 and O are too similar to eachother could you perhaps put a stroke on the number 0?

Comment by Brynda Meyerholt (brynda1231) Tue, 6th December

@ brynda: the 0 and O are the same because 

*start teaching*all heddles on a loom have the same eye*end teaching*

;) A line or anything else barricades the eye's passage.

Comment by Aeolien Tue, 6th December

Are you using a loom to create the glyphs, Latgin-1?

Comment by Brynda Meyerholt (brynda1231) Tue, 6th December

Latin-1*

Comment by Brynda Meyerholt (brynda1231) Tue, 6th December

@brynda:one of my hobbies is weaving :) My fonts are in my head, put on paper, then made with FontStruct. I used "weaving imagery" here in my comment :) The Øø is Danish
