red_trillium: cartoon cat that says "I love cats but can't eat a whole one" (quiver and bow)
[personal profile] red_trillium posting in [community profile] arrow_rest
I don't think I've ever posted a pict of my quiver. I've gotten complements on it the last couple of times I've been to the club. I got it here in NZ, at Advanced Archery. It had an open bottom, supposedly so you could pull arrows out that way easily.

I found it just made me look like the amature I was when I'd put the arrows into the quiver after retrieving them, only to have them fall out the bottom. Comedic yes. Not so good for my morale or the arrows.

Pict of the original quiver, with my modifications after the cut.





Obviously I needed something at the bottom to keep the arrows in. I tried just a bit of sheepskin, from an old car seat sheepskin my wife had. That was ok, but it needed a bit more so I stapled the sheepskin to some cardboard. This complemented the sheepskin that was already at the top of the quiver when I got it.



And that worked fine, except some arrows would go a bit astray and slip down and outside the sheepskin.

Add a $2 Shop ketchup bottle at the top with the bottom cut out, staple the cardboard/sheepskin to the bottom and presto! It all works fine.



I don't have a photo of the finished product yet, I'll upload one to the comm when I do one.
