    My whole family was into archery when I was a kid. Recently, my wife and I have picked it up and found the new types of bows and arrows are extraordinary. However, I still have a fondness for the older styles of quivers so I made one for each of us. Mine is a back style with a harness that stabilizes it's position and some adjustable, snap in separators for arrow organization. The bottom is 3/4 inch thick laminated leather. I don't have a sewing machine so this was a real challenge to hand sew. Took a bit. P1010098.JPG P1010100.JPG P1010103.JPG P1010101.JPG
    The other is a hip quiver for my wife. It was interesting and I would make a number of design changes if I ever made it again but she is happy.

    Really nice. Great attention to detail. Just curious, how many hours do you have into both of them.

    Thank you all for the positive comments. The tooling was something I picked up from and old Al Stohlman book that he calls inverted carving. I find it works really well on large areas if the design fits the form and prevents having to do acres of background.
    High Standard, it is a bit difficult to estimate the total time because I completed them mixed in with other projects over several weeks. I know I spent about 2 to 3 hours just doing design and patterns. I would guess the back quiver has about 6 to 10 hours total and the other a bit less. Most of the time in both is for the stitching. The back quiver had a lot of pretty difficult stitching to do and I almost backed myself into a corner a couple of times with the wrong sequence.

    Robber58,

    Would you be willing to share these designs with me?

    This is very timely as I have been shooting the heck out of my Super Kodiak lately and have been wanting to build my own quiver. I would be super appreciative if I could steal from your experience and tweak the design some to fit my needs.

    Thanks - and awesome work.

    Jason

    Jason,
    I have done some reshuffling in my shop recently and my recent patterns folder has gone missing. I don't mind sharing at all if I can locate them. I am currently hosting at a state park in Oregon and will be back at the end of June. I will look then and let you know if I can figure out what happened to my patterns.

    Jason,
    I am back and attempted to send you messages but it seems your box is full. I have the pattern but we need to talk.
