Make a Hunter .... Quiver

Picture of Make a Hunter .... Quiver
quiver on.JPG

Wanting to make something to give to my brother-in law for Christmas this year I began searching the net looking for ideas.  Since he is a hunter I wanted to make him something that he could use when out chasing some white tail, or at least something for hunting deer.

 I came across Dave Canterbury's site  and he had made an archers quiver and I knew what I was going to make.  In this "ible" I will show how I made  mistakes, give pointers on how to not make mistakes, and end up with a very nice quiver if I do say so myself.

Love those wolves! Have you seen "The Grey" with Liam Neeson ? Wolves take on a whole new meaning!

Yea love that movie! I think they should have more people survive the crash though. That way there could have had more food for the wolves!

instead of a wooden plug, could i just use a PVC plug?
RedneckEngineer (author)  hrodriguez72 years ago
Yes you could use a PVC end cap, nice idea.
yeah, I thought it would be simpler
and I dont have a jig aw or anything like that :P

I saw someone using a quiver that looked a little strange, but worked very efficiently.
The quiver was longer and had a hole in the side. When he wanted an arrow, he reached through the hole, grabbed one, pulled it up so the tip was above the bottom of the hole, and pulled it out from the bottom.

I'm proud I got to be the 1,000th view on your page. This is very clever. Your holding out on us though. Where are all your other great ideas?

Good work.

I'm glad you like it. I'm usually full of ideas but not the follow thru. I get things half started laying around, then something else pops in my head and it shoves it to the back then forgotten about. I hope to sometime get my workshop cleaned up enough so I can actually tinker more. Once I do there will be some other ibles I'll post. Mostly I've been reproducing some great ideas I find on here and not so much of orginal works. Also on the "to do" list is get a new camera so I can post. LOL

that's one handsome build!

i agree with the drainage idea. unless if you could make the bottom part detachable so you could clean the insides easily from time to time.

mrninja3 years ago
Great build! Though 2 ideas came to mind.

1) A leather (plug sized) cutout, glued to the bottom of the plug.
2) Add a drainage hole to the plug? Water, and blood maybe?....=P
RedneckEngineer (author)  mrninja3 years ago
I thought about the leather plug for the bottom but putting the arrows in would cut through and possably become lost, so thats why I used wood. As for a hole for water drainage...didn't really think about that.
What I meant was, a patch of leather covering the bottom of the wood plug. It's just for ascetics? BTW, wood works!
Yeah a dainage hole would definately be a good idea. It's standard on most military gear me thinks. =P

Nice one... thanks for posting! There aren't many 'ibles for making a quiver. I want to make one for a friend who is about to adopt his second daughter (Psalm 127).
RedneckEngineer (author)  huttarl3 years ago
Thanks! If you make one post a pic I'd love to see it!

.  Great job.
.  I think this must have gotten hung up in the filters. It took it a while to show up.

Brilliant build! Good job on the aesthetics too. :D
RedneckEngineer (author)  Kryptonite3 years ago
Thanks! It's getting harder each year to top what I did the previous, I think I nailed it with this one. :)
The thing that gets me is when their birthday is close to Christmas, as most of the gifts I give are home made. Makes it hard, it does!
