How many sq. ft. does it take or what size leather do you order?

You're looking at roughly a 2' x 2' piece. 4 sq ft is needed. That'll leave enough for body, strap, and bottom. It'll take three 72" laces.

The leather definitions are best explained here

http://www.zackwhite.com/Selecting-Leather_ep_44.html

I use 6/7oz for most all projects, but not exclusively.


As for treatment of the leather, that's also a personal thing. I'll cover how I do it soon.

Nicely done Bud. I have a feeling there's going to be quite a few BQ's built by members this summer thanks to you!

Some of that could be the lack of stiffness in the leather. Top strap position is important, especially to us less limber/flexible. And having a back quiver too stiff will also be a hindrance, and makes for noisy arrows.

Page 75 of Hunting The Hard Way covers a few pointers on a back quiver. I will say that in the book Howard describes a proper position, as mentioned a few posts earlier, as "the nock end of the arrows will be just beside the right ear or the left, according to whether the archer is right or left handed." If you look at old videos of Howard, or still photos, his quiver hangs quite low on the shoulder. I find this unnatural for me. It may be perfectly fine for others. You just have to figure out what suits you and practice, practice, practice.

Simply put, back quivers aren't for everyone, but if you ever wanted to try one, making your own is not too bad of a task. That way if it's not for you, St. Jude can always use a donation item along about May of every year. [Wink]

Hey Bud, going to paint the olive oil on my quiver tonight when I get home. How long in the sun do You figure? Remember it's around 110 degrees here today.

Took me 30 sec to solve the headache I've had for a year. Lol

Thanks a bunch.

The quiver will let you know Tim how much it wants. Go with even moderate coats at first. Let it sit and soak. The you'll be able to see the areas that need more. Remember the edges and holes will soak more rapidly than the hide face and back. Brush it down inside and out with less on the inside. I pour it onto my palm and then work it in that way on the inside. It's messy but effective. An even distribution is desired, but after a week or two you'd be surprised how it evens out. And yes, you can get too much, as will be evident in your clothing when you wear it. Better to go too light with several treatments than douse it and have leather treating remorse. It'll also looked streaked in places, but give it time to try to balance itself out, then apply more where needed. The strap takes oil much more quickly. So do the laces.


Good deal Brian!! I have tried the lower wearing of the quiver but it just didn't work for me as good as having the top strap centered on the quiver body. I'm far from proficient, but way away from novice.

You are correct Bud! The quiver is great!

When I got off work I hurried home to try it out. It is the first back quiver that I have had that wasn't a chore for me to get the arrows out of.

I spent the best part of an hour out shooting with it. When I finished I came inside to put some leather treatment on it. Bud said that Neetsfoot oil would work and I happened to have some on hand. Was pleasantly surprised to find a nice inscription on the bottom of the quiver form Bud. Applied the oil as Bud said above and went out and shot a little more. It is already starting to conform to my back. Will let this coat soak in for a couple days and then give it another application.

Thank you Bud for the very generous donation and the very informative build along. I will take good care of your creation and enjoy using it for many years to come and then pass it along to one of my grandkids someday.
