    Let's See Some Homemade Quivers

    Was wondering if any of you would like to share some pics of your homemade quivers... looking for inspiration.
    Thanks.

    I drew up this one hoping to make it from a heavy suede leather thriftstore jacket.
    What's a good measurement for these plains-style quiver if I'd like to hold about 1/2 dozen arras?

    The last homemade quiver I made was a quickie quiver riveted to a piece of boot leather. Another gentleman saw that and laughed so hard he made me one out of an 8 arrow two piece and a leather backing that looks much nicer. These are hip quivers.

    I've made all sorts of tube quivers with cardboard and pvc for field point archery and since you can buy arrow holder rubber for about $8, all you need is a hood.

    Really surprised that there's only been one response to this thread. I was hoping to see both leather tooling artists' work and simple man's necessity show up here. There've been 110 views. Common guys! I know you're more than meat gatherers and target killers- there's an artist or a cheapskate (like me) lurking in each of us!
    LET'S SEE THOSE QUIVERS! (Sorry for the shouting)

    Had to go measure the Plains style quiver I made for the missus..
    28" long and 5" deep, covers the fletch when in storage with just the nocks sticking out. Its depth allows for 6 arrows to be held in comfort.
    Made it out of black leather and she really likes it, great for cruising thru bush and keeping the fletch protected,,, only problem she says is that it is HOT to wear on a hot day....
    Don't have a good pic of it tho,,,
    here's some o mine.. the plains one is kinda in the back of them..

    homemade quiver

    Here's one I made for my 46" Stalker. It actually works real well, holds a dozen arrows easy. I have a piece to cover the top, and the top pouch snaps off and can be worn on belt.

    Good work on those oak leaves..nice. You might consider doing some knife cuts they seem to really help bring out the interior depth of oaks... here's an example

    Wow! Great stuff! McPhee and ArtV, you's got the skills to pay the bills..
    My uncle was a saddle maker for the Calgary Stampede, he passed away some time ago and I have got all his stuff! Not even sure what to do with most of it! Stamps and cutters punches, my feeble attempts convince me to leave well enough alone! haha
    It is indeed nice to see what can be done with them!

    Wow! The pics show that we have some awesome artists on here. I'm starting on mine tonight so will have mine in a night or two to post. Admittedly, my plains-style will look like a baggy comparitively but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Couldn't help myself...was up to 2am to complete this plains-style quiver. Made from a suede jacket for less than $2, a bent arrow and some thread (w/sewing machine). A tight budget makes me pretty resourceful.
    I use to wonder why they made boys take Home Ec. in high school... boy am I glad I paid attention. I'm pretty satisfied being this is my first quiver! Got it pretty close to my original design too. Might add some rabbit to the opening later.
    Please keep posting more pictures of your homemade quivers.

    ATers...
    Post your homemade quivers! Anyone have a homemade bow-quiver?

    Nick,
    Thanks. Gonna try and make a couple more w/different leathers. I really like the picture of your "man-cave" with all the bows/arrows and especially the quivers that you've made. Next goal is making some arrows.

    Got a nice straight snake gourd from the neighbor and had to make a quiver out of it. Won't be my hunting quiver but plan to use it for 3-d shoots!!

    Man that is the biggest rattler I've ever seen. The game will hear you leaving your house and run. LOL But for a quiver, that is the neatest thing I've seen!
    Keep the quiver pics coming.

    good job on that plains quiver...I like the idea of using soft leather...you can do the same by turning the flesh side out. Nice.
