Introduction: Bow and Arrow Rack
My 2 daughters and I are sport archers. Storing the recurve bows (and associated arrows) properly yet compactly was a challenge, and I was unable to find a satisfactory ready-made solution commercially. Optimally you want to hang the bow unstrung sitting horizontally on two level wall pegs and have the arrows stored in a horizontal below it. The few commercial designs were large wood pieces of furniture, that would not fit anywhere in my home and were over engineered for the task in question.
So I designed a 3D printable two piece rack that mounts closely to the wall and has six hooks into which arrows can snap. The design has sufficient spacing between the hooks to account for fletching, provided you alternate the orientation of each successive arrows.
When mounting, be sure that the two pieces are close enough together to hold the ends of the arrows.
