How to Build a Quiver?


A quiver is used to carry arrows. To build a quiver , buy leather sheets flexible enough to work with but at the same time hard enough to provide support and hold the arrows. Leather is classified by thickness and soft leather helps to hold arrows in place; keep these in mind. Use 23 by 19 by 18 inches; the longer edges will be the right and left sides of the quiver, while shorter edges will be the top and bottom of the quiver. Spread the leather out and turn the backside of the leather to face the upward direction towards you. Mark each side using an edge ink line that is about ¼ inch from each of the four edges. Draw tick marks on both the top and bottom edges and make these marks directly only on the edge ink lines but start and end at about ¼ inch away from the left and right sides. The ticks should be made at every ½ inch. Measure and mark 1 inch inward from the right and left edge ink lines and then draw parallel lines on the right and left edges. Both the right and left edges must have two parallel lines: the edge ink line that is a ¼ inch away from the edge and the new side parallel line which is 1 inch away from the edge ink line. Mark every 1 inch with small dots on the side parallel and edge ink lines you had marked previously. Start the dots at about ½ inch from the bottom edge and use a hole punch to punch holes at every tick mark on both the left and right edges. Roll the leather so that it overlaps both the right and left edges so that the side parallel line holes are aligned. Use rubber bands to help keep the shape and use sturdy 6 foot leather lacing to lace up the quiver as you work from the outside bottom of the quiver. Insert each end of the lacing into the holes then pull the ends into the inside of the quiver. Once there, insert the lacing into the next set of holes from the inside and then pull outside. Cross the laces on the outside of the quiver then insert them into the next set of hole without crossing them again when inserting from the inside of the quiver. Make the cross pattern only on the outside of the quiver and tie off all the lace ends when done then cure so as to keep the ends from untying. Attach the straps by laying the quiver down with the side and the stitch pattern facing toward you. Flatten the quiver to an oval shape and use two 20 inch long straps to connect to the quiver. Fit the strap to your comfort then punch two holes of about 3 inches from the bottom edge and an inch apart from each other. Place the holes on the left side and reverse that for a left handed archer. Punch identical holes into the top and bottom straps for the quiver then lace the holes together so the lacing acts as a buckle. Make four holes in the top strap using a hole punch. Make the holes at 1 inch from the strap edge then match them in the top back edge and make and punch matching holes to lace the strap to the top of the quiver. Attach the top strap to the top edge of the quiver using lacing and punch out six holes on the bottom strap edge and the bottom of the quiver. Measure the correct distance on the quiver, and keep in mind that the strap requires identical holes. Ensure you punch identical holes into the top and bottom straps for the quiver and the holes should be in the free edges of the straps. Once you find the right preferred size, lace the holes together so that the lacing acts as a buckle. Cut out the bottom piece for the quiver and measure it so that it fits snugly into the bottom of the quiver about 2 ¼ inches by 7 inches. Punch out the bottom edge holes and identical holes on the bottom piece then stitch the bottom to the quiver with leather lacing and then tie off the ends.
