With getting close to the top I'll need to do the fold over at the mouth. It helps to wet the leather to do this.

Here the top is already folded over, but I run water in a pan deep enough to submerge the lip to be folded and the fold itself. I don't dunk it too deeply.

 -

Aligning the holes in the fold over. A big nail helps get the holes lined up, but be careful not to scratch up the leather.

 -

Folded and laced

 -

This is how I do the extra lacing. If Glenn wants to cut it or use it to cross over to the back of the quiver to use as a divider from BH arrows to his stumpers, that's up to him.

Now that the body is laced and aligned, time to punch those last three holes for proper alignment in them.

Here's the bottom cut out from a pattern.

 -

How I make the bottom is kinda weird but crafty.

Stay tuned.

What I've done in the past is take the quiver body and find two matching glasses from the dish cabinet in the kitchen that are of a nice size for the bottom. I place the two glasses in the body tube with the body lying on its back on the counter and push the glasses apart until the leather is tight. I get a measurement of just slightly over 7" x 3 1/8" with the nice oval ends. I transfer the 7 x 3 1/8 measurements to the card stock and then use the glasses to draw the nice rounded ends in the 7x3 1/8 rectangle. I cut out the pattern.

This is what I get:

Before punching the pattern I used a cutout blank leather bottom to mark as I held it to the quiver bottom. Holes are 1/4 in from the edge and 1/2 inch apart, except in the rounded sides. This is marked by eye. When the leather is marked I punched it and then marked the card pattern with the holes already in the leather and punched the card stock pattern for future use. This pic is from Tim's (azwatasha's) build marking the leather bottom.

Before lacing the bottom we have to punch the holes for the quiver strap. If looking at the face of the quiver, for a right handed user the strap would need to be on the left side at the bottom. I like to punch four holes and put them just behind the apex of the side's curve.

Now we can lace on the bottom. Line up your pattern. There are 35 holes in the quiver bottom for the base to attach and likewise 35 holes in the base piece. I mention this because I have had too many and too few holes before when "eyeballing" the hole marks exclusively. [knothead] [banghead]

I want to have the body overlap to be on the upper edge when worn on the back. I position the bottom piece accordingly and begin lacing. Just like the overlap of the G we mentioned before, we want to lace with the overlap of the G and go in that direction. When starting the lacing, leave the loops loose for the first five or so holes. This will allow us to tuck the final lacing into the loops for locking them in at the end of the lacing job. I start the lacong along the side of the quiver that will be closest to the wearer's back.

This is the side of the quiver that'll be at the wearer's back.

And the outside with overlap cross-lace showing

Work your way through about 8-10 holes loosely lacing the lace. It's easier to work through the process leaving the three or four loops behind you loose, that way when closing it off you can get your fingers in there to lace easily. Tighten behind you as you go, always leaving the previous three or so loose.

When lacing, pull the lacing tightly. This is where good quality lacing will pay off. I've had lacing break while lacing up the bottom and had to pull it all out and start over with a new piece. That just stinks when it happens.

When you get all holes laced, stick the lead lacing through the loose loops from the beginning. Now take the loose end from the beginning section and thread it through the ending loops. Then work everything tight and lock it down. Trim off the ends.

Marking and punching the holes for the top of the strap.

This strap will be centered. Some archers like theirs closer to the top edge. This will drop the arrows when worn, more like Howard Hill wore his. But if you read Howard's book, he describes a good quiver as having the arrows close to the hunter's ear for ease of access/retrieval. It's really just a personal preference.

Cutting the strap.

The way I make them and attach them is having one main strap with lace at the bottom for adjustment. After a conversation with David Mitchell and following his advice, I think this is an excellent way to do it. My straps are about 24" long.

I usually punch 8 holes in the strap bottom. Six are at the top.

With the 6 holes at the top, attach in this manner. Start at the bottom holes with straight up lacing in the inside of the quiver.

Everything together.

Glenn wanted 21" deep. I added a thick piece of leather cut just smaller than the bottom pattern and wedged it into the bottom of the quiver to protect the lacing from sharp broadhead points. This put me right on 21" deep.

That's it.

If there are questions, I'll be glad to offer my answers, but there are many techniques out there. This is just one way one leatherworker does it.

I treated Glenn's quiver leather before assembling. The vegetable tanned leather soaked up everything I put on it. It'll need more. The more you put on it, the darker the leather gets.

Feel free to mention your Mudd Flapp Roy [Smile]

Excellent idea in my mind!

Wow Bud. I don't think I bid enough for all the work you put into it!

This should become a sticky in the how-to section. [clapper]

In reality it was about two hours. When I get rolling, I get rolling. I enjoy it.

You'll need to treat it more. It's thirsty.

Headed to the PO in a few minutes.

Thanks again for virtually doubling the St. Jude auction for the quiver(s). You and Tim!!
