I recently made a quiver and got a lot of positive feedback. So I thought I would share the design.
Here is what it looks like:
This is my first run, so I made it with the cheapest materials that I have on hand. The body and the strap are made with 4-5oz vegtan leather. The bottom and the arrow spacer are made with MDF, using GlowForge cut. And the lining between the MDF pieces and the body are 2 strips of 2-3oz suede leather.
I didn’t take many pictures of the process. I didn’t think anyone would be interested. But I got one here that show how those pieces line up:
In addition to those, I used a D ring, a few rivets and a Chicago screw on the strap.
- My first run, the holes on the MDF was too small for the needles I have on hand. So I made an adjustment to my original design to make the hole a little bit bigger.
- I cut the suede leather 10 in. long. When I am done stitching it to the MDF, I cut off 0.25in. on the end.
- The vegtan leather was thick, so all the measurements work out fine for me. You may want to choose materials that helps the 3 pieces line up. (I’m thinking of an alternative where the leather don’t meet on the round, but wrap around one another for easy adaption on different thickness.)
Finally, here is the svg:
