Introduction: Quick and Easy Arrow Quiver
I was keeping my arrows in a cardboard box that they came in from the store.
It was fine at first but very quickly it became evident that the box was not going to last very long and I needed a more permanent solution to carry my arrows when practicing. Preferably one that I didn't have to set down on the ground like I did with the box.
So in true IBLE fashion I rummaged through my possibilium (all props to l8nite for that awesome term) pile to see what I could make.
Step 1: Rummaging Results
a small section of 2" PVC pipe (approx 12 inches long) to make the body structure.
a 2" round wood plug (left overs from a project that required a hole saw) to make the bottom of the quiver.
some nylon webbing for a support structure.
scrap canvas material to cover it and give it a finished look.
Step 2: Some Assembly Required
using sandpaper I smoothed the edges of the PVC pipe and the wooden plug
Since I don't have access to a lathe I had to use a knife to carve a recess into the top edge of the wooden plug so that it fits into the end of the PVC pipe.
a little elmer's glue around the edge will fill in any imperfections in the fit between the carved plug and the PVC pipe.
some quick work with a needle and thread will turn the nylon webbing into a sling that will support the quiver and give you a place to attach the quiver to a clip.
wrap the inside-out canvas loosely around the PVC and pin it. Slide it off and stitch it up to make a tube. cut out a circle of canvas and sew it to one end of the tube.
Place the nylon webbing in place around the PVC and wood assembly.
Turn the tube right-side out and slide it onto the assembled quiver innards.
if your canvas is longer than your inner assembly (like mine was) trim it so it is about 2 inches past the top of the quiver, then turn the edge down for a decorative edge.
Take a carabiner keychain and attach it to the nylon webbing so that you can clip the quiver onto your belt loop.
For now, I like using it clipped onto a belt loop, but I may design a back harness setup down the road.
