Step 1:

Get your materials together first. Many of these things can be substituted for different material. Have fun with it.

Tools suggested: drill

needle nose pliers

rivet gun

1/2" grip rivets (3mm or 1/8" dia.) (optional but a few are useful)

1/4" grip rivets (3mm or 1/8" dia.)

1/8" grip rivets (3mm or 1/8" dia.)

1/8" or 3mm steel washers

scissors

awl

a long claw

large paint stir stick

Materials needed: 18" x 12" stiff plastic canvas

3" PVC Cap

1" webbing (6 ft)

1" plastic buckle

Fabric glue

Fabric of your choice. 1 yard of 57+ inch wide will cover most quivers. Get extra or a contrasting color or pattern if you are covering the inside.

Batting or foam for the bottom something for the arrow heads to rest on.

Step 2:

Cut your canvas to length. You want it long enough for your shafts to fit as you like. General rule of thumb, fletchings exposed. Make sure to adjust for any foam you may add to the bottom. If you are adding batting or foam to the bottom for arrowheads then accommodate accordingly.

Step 3:

Use a piece of your trimmings to measure the overlap and mark it on both ends of the overlapping canvas.

Step 4:

Now using the measurements determined in the previous step overlap and rivet the plastic canvas you are using for your tube together. I space mine evenly throughout the length. You can also just do the corners and stitch it together if you wish a cleaner overlap. I have found Dacron B-50 waxed bowstring material works quite well.

Step 5:

Next determine the length of the strap you will need then add 2 ft. Always best to have a little extra. Feed the nylon webbing through the overlap. A pair of needle nose pliers or forceps help a lot here.

Step 6:

Position the nylon webbing remember to keep enough coming out of the top to be able to add some padding over the shoulder and a little extra for the buckle to attach to. Make a hole in the webbing that you can rivet it in place as shown. Rivet it top and bottom. Extra rivets can be added if you wish.
