Here are a couple pics of the great quiver Bud made.
I have given it one treatment of oil and will do several more over the next few weeks.

I hope to see that quiver next to a nice Kansas buck this fall and Tim's next to an Arizona elk.

[thumbsup]

Thanks again all. It's been real fun. I'm already looking forward to the next St. Jude auction time. I had a great time building these two.

Forgot to cover the treating...sorry.


Treating the leather:

If the leather is "green" (untreated) vegetable tanned leather, then I like to wet form the quiver before adding any oils.

Wet forming is just what it sounds like. Wet the quiver, not a dripping soak, or a light rub of a damp cloth, but wet it so it's pliable. Wear it when pliable to get the shape you want and use your hands if necessary to form it to your needs. Be careful not to crease the sides where the body begins to collapse, but rather allow the body to collapse with a nice rolled over transition from front to back.

Let dry completely.

When dry, treat it with your favorite leather treatment

Mink Oil paste
Montana Pitch Blend
Neetsfoot oil
Fiebing's Aussie Conditioner with bee's wax (what I use mostly)
Pure Olive Oil

Basically anything that does not have petroleum distillates in it, such as Neetsfoot Compound.

Treat it and flex it. Let the treatment soak in.
Repeat/treat/flex until the desired look/feel is reached. The more treatment you put on it, the darker the leather will get. You can do too much. If you do too much, the treatment will trasfer to your clothing easily.

You can also treat after cutting out your leather parts but prior to punching any holes on your leather. Then after you get the desired soak of treatment, punch the holes and assemble. Treating with punched holes can allow the treatment to soak into the holes more so than the leather surface of the body. It can look splotchy.

I use a cheap paint brush to apply the oil/treatment. Sometimes I use my bare hands.

This is where my wife gets upset occasionally. The kitchen table gets oiled alot. Use old towels as a work surface, if possible, on top of your workbench, countertop, table. Keep the wife happy.

Thanks for a great build-a-long Bud. Very informative and easy to follow instructions. I had purchased some leather previously and was planning to build a couple quivers, never having built any before, with your help my 1st one turned out great. Your the man.

Post up some pics Greg [Smile] I just finished one for myself. It was the other half of Glenn's hide for his quiver. Already got it broken in.

Tim sent me a nice pic of him out stumping. Too nice a pic to not share.

Hey Greg, that is one NICE quiver You built there Sir! Bud is very VERY helpful.He made me an absolute Beauty! Just to let You know, the JD Berry Vixen I got from You is still smoken' them arrows!

Bud,
Got a question for You, I believe I have enough olive oil saturated into the quiver, judging by my clothes, I painted on four coats and it seems to be breaking in very nicely. I'm working the center section, trying not to kink it.
My question is,
with the olive oil, should I still use a leather conditioner for the break-in?
Sorry for any ignorance, but I don't know any different.
Here's to You Bud! [clapper] [clapper] [clapper] [thumbsup] [thumbsup] [thumbsup]

You can use either, but once break-in arrives, or just before, you may want to switch over to a waterproofing conditioner, like mink oil paste. But also keep in mind, even when treated with waterproofing, leather will intake rain if subjected to it enough. I got caught in a downpour in Georgia last year. I think my organs were saturated. The back quiver did eventually dry out though. So did I.

Yesterday I put a heavy coat of Neetsfoot on mine that I just built. It was nice and evenly dark brown. Today it's back to the medium tone.

For yours, I'd say back off and begin working the body of the quiver to make it flex like you want. Give it a few days. If after that you think it needs more, then apply more. When it's there, an occasional treatment before hunting season starts is good, but only if needed. I have one quiver I treated so much I haven't put anything on it past that initial break-in. It's still good and flexible and doesn't transfer any oil to my clothing. I made this quiver (in the vid below) out of 7/8oz bull hide and out of the same hide I made one for a friend in NY. He asked about break-in. I made a short vid for him.
