  2. I did this for a girl who wanted me to make a gift for her boyfriend (now husband) for Christmas. I’ll just show the finished art without dyes. Each item was done individually and at separate times, when the picture was take it was still drying. Yes this is on 9/10 ounce leather!
  3. I have some experience with veg tan but I’ve only ever connected pieces with rivets and buckles and so on. Very little stitching, no gluing. Now, I’m making a quiver. I’m buying new tools and doing a lot of research, as it’ll be my first times for carving, stitching, and gluing. I have some questions and concerns - I’m not working from an existing pattern. I’m thinking about closing the quiver’s long edge with a baseball stitch. The straps will be connected to that edge with overlays, and help reinforce the seam. Concerns: I’m designing the pattern with paper to start, and the construction paper warps into a teardrop shape without reinforcement at the seam. I worry I will have some weakness in the same area with 8 oz veg tan? Would it be more reasonable to use a butt stitch, even though I don’t prefer it aesthetically? Regardless of the stitch, should I, or would it be advisable to, contact cement (or otherwise glue) the butt edges of the leather together before stitching? Thanks for any tips, first time posting but I've been lurking for a long time.
  4. Hey folks, I came here in the fall and asked some big questions, as this was an ambitious project. First time carving (the coaster in the album was my practice run) and first time stitching. I also hand-drafted the pattern (why make things easy?). I made tons of little mistakes (like why, or why, didn't I use an awl?). I also learned a lot, and I'm very happy with the overall results, and so was my niece! (it was a present for her). Thanks for all the help! The Making-of album: https://ibb.co/album/bbvb1X
  5. Here is my latest archery quiver. A special request for a Game of Thrones dire wolf. Design carved and tooled, then pained with Angelus leather paints. I had to antique this to get the definition on the design. I'm reasonably happy with the result and the owner is delighted.
  6. Hey everyone, Haven't posted for a little bit, but here it goes. I am almost finished with my recurve quiver for archery. I used 7 to 9 oz. Leather and tooled in the house stark sigil. Hand stitched with fiebings briar brown antiquing gel. I still have to burnish the edges and do the pouch that will connect to the hole you see cut. I am also going to make a custom belt to go with it. The rabbit fur is from hunting with my brother. He dyed it to a brown but not sure how he did it. Had to resize the images to fit on here. So quality is not the greatest
  7. Finished this beauty and had it delivered this last weekend. This was my fourth quiver, and the first Mongolian Horse Quiver I've made. This quiver was a blast to make, even if the stitching took way longer than I would have liked (the longer it takes the more movies I get to watch, right?). This style of quiver was design to wear strapped to the thigh and would traditionally hold six arrows.
  8. Here's a quiver and bracer I did recently. The hardest bit was doing the wolf head design, since I'm not much of an artist. I think it turned out OK.
  9. Soooo we finished my Bow Quiver.. It was a hell of a weekend, but its alive!:D I hope you like it.
  10. My friend commissioned me to make him a hip quiver and arm guard with a Loki theme. This is my first attempt at a quiver, I can't wait to see it in action. Any recommendations/comments on these pieces? I'd love to hear what I can improve on. Thanks! Corey www.theleathergeek.com
  11. Recently I started to play with a horsebow and made an "orientalizing" hip quiver. The arabic writing boasts that my arrows are "faster than lightning". It's a prototype that will be tested tomorrow. In the future I'd replace the chicago screws by stitching. Critique, comments and advice as always most welcome.
  12. I've been working on small leather projects off and on for the last several years...more off than on lately. I've had this in my head for the last year or so but haven't had the time to work on it. It's the biggest project I've done to date and I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. Now my hands need to recover from all those stitches. I couldn't get my son to model it for me so I had to hang it in the garage.
  13. Here is my first big leatherwork project. I think its turned out OK. I'm quite pleased with the arrow basketweave on the belt, that worked really well. The tiger on the quiver could be better, but quite pleased with the overall appearance. Maybe I need better tools! The basketweave on the quiver bent the cheap ebay tool - now I have a much better one! I took the pattern off my existing quiver, so I'm happy that worked out. I did have some problems with the finishing after antiqueing, but did manage to recover. What do you think? I'll have to see how it stands up to actual use.
  14. I really enjoy traditional archery and have been wanting to make this new quiver for quite a while. The quiver has two shoulder straps so it can be worn backpack style. It also has a couple extra D-ring attachments so it can be switched to a single shoulder carry or a hip carry. The pocket on the front of the quiver contains a small metal tin in which I store an extra bow string and some basic survival gear. (Matches, tinder, a small folding knife, etc.) The quiver has two buckled straps on each side for strapping on a lightweight bedroll and a small axe to be used on overnight bushcrafting trips. For the haversack I made one half of a 1920's model U.S. Cavalry saddle bags. I modified the front flap, eliminating the standard billet and buckle arrangement, so I could latch/unlatch the flap with one hand. I also stitched a couple of small patch pockets on the inside. The haversack is big enough to hold a small cook pot, a drinking cup, a small alcohol cook stove, some food, and assorted personal items. All in all, I'm quite pleased with this set-up. It gives me the ability to carry some minimal overnight gear when I get the urge to go for a trip into the woods with my longbow.
  15. Hi! I continued the scythian pictographic writing collection. Its a side quiver. The middle picture mean: Before the eyes of the ancestors, born two families. The cone is my family crest. That two family tree grown two flowers. A girl and a boy. The girl is older than the boy, not so mutch. The leaves on the stem show that. These two people meet , and perhaps they create new "seeds". The waves at the bottom of the image mean: the portion of the image took place in the past. The above waves show the future. I hope it was interesting. :D
  16. I made these prototypes with a view to sell... the leather I used for the tooled part of the quiver isn't quite up to scratch but I'm happy with the bracer. Both made with 2.5mm veg tan leather (bracer is more like 2.8-3.0) with a waxed finish. I'd welcome any constructive criticism you guys have to share, otherwise enjoy
  17. Hey folks! Thought I would share a custom quiver order I took last month. I really enjoyed the way it came out. This was for a repeat customer, but they wanted a hip quiver with adjustable angle and the option of adding a shoulder strap for a walking quiver. I also put together a matching black and green arm guard. On the quiver I tried what I thought was the technique for getting a gradient transition between colors, but I think maybe I need to use a lighter green or thin it out. I've seen some quivers on etsy with very striking color transitions but I haven't nailed down the way to do it yet. Thanks for lookin'!
  18. Here is an arrow side quiver I made to be raffled off at the United Bowhunters of Missouri Rendezvous that was held last weekend. The body and strap are made from chrome-tanned bison leather and the tan trim is deer. The orange looking leather is caiman as is the black arrowhead. The lettering was done in ring lizard and the scaled leather is tanned carp hide. I carved the buttons from deer antler and the hanging ring from moose antler. Everything was sewn by hand using artificial sinew. This archery arm guard was commissioned by a friend of mine as a birthday present for a hunting buddy of his. It is ostrich leg skin backed with vegetable-tanned cowhide. The trim is deer and I carved the lace hooks from deer antler. Everything was sewn by hand using B-50 bow string material. This is an arm guard that I made for myself. My other arm guard wasn't worn out or anything but I get a hankering for something new every once in a while. I made this one from caiman and backed it with vegetable-tanned cowhide. The arrowhead in the middle is made from ring lizard. The trim is deer and the lace hooks are deer antler. I sewed this one up using artificial sinew. Darren
  19. So I bought a few Tandy patterns and decided to finally get going with a large back quiver. I've already screwed up in that I burnished the edges before dying, whoops. Guess I was too eager to use my new burnisher. I'm posting pics in order, hopefully I'll have the whole thing finished up soon. I designed a celtic-knot style arrowhead, didn't want to go too crazy with complexity but wanted something interesting to go below the pouch. Used a backgrounder around the arrow and along the edges of the quiver, the leather has some flaws in it that I hope will be disguised at least a bit by that. I wanted to try out some more of my stamps though, so I made a "vine" by going back and forth with a thin scallop edge tool and stuck some leaves on each of the joins. Thought it turned out better than it had any right to, really. Then the dying, I almost went with green but figured I'd save that for another day. I like how much the arrow pops out now.
  20. I'm kind of stumped and would like some input. I'm making my first large back quiver based off a Tandy pattern I bought, and it calls for a pouch that gets folded at the corners with a zipper going up the center, something like this: The thing is, I don't particularly care for a zipper, it just doesn't suit my recurve bow and wooden arrows all that much. So what options do I have? I like the fact that it can be opened from the center, so I can grab whatever little things are in there. Should I make buttons and loops to hold the flap shut? Grommets and lace it? Something else I haven't thought of?
  21. This is my first Hill style quiver. I normally do gun holsters. What do you all think? I'm trying to figure out what price to sell it at.
  22. I'm an archer who just finished his first back quiver. Over 40 hours of labor (maybe closer to 50; I stopped keeping exact tally at 38). It's my own design, an adaptation (mutation?) of a very basic Al Stohlman/Tandy template, which had no carving or overlays. This project was a lot of self-education about tools, cutting, carving, stamping, dyeing (including mixing and shading), leather characteristics, hardware, problem-solving, and finishing. The close-up of the dragon carving was taken before I dyed the rest of the quiver. I got the dragon, by the way, from the web, imported it into Photoshop, manipulated it into a line drawing, scaled and printed it, traced it, then transferred it to the leather. I'm really proud of how it turned out, especially since I don't consider myself much of an artist. The overlays took a total of about 10 hours to cut (had to be a bit wider than the quiver to make up for a little extra circumference, especially over the straps), stamp like dragon scales, dye, and sew by hand (had to do that as I curved the quiver, otherwise they wouldn't lie flat). But they were worth the effort. Of course, I hand-sewed the entire quiver and learned how to keep my diamond awl sharp. The Tandy plans called for a 24" strap from the bottom. After sewing, I realized that this was way too short. So I had to improvise, sewing on an extension in a non-visible way. This was my 6th leather making project ever, though many times more complex than the others (coaster, archery arm guard, change purse, wallet, and uncarved and pre-dyed hip quiver). I really couldn't have made this quiver, however, without the comments I found at this site. Thanks to both the pros and novices who wrote about their experiences.
  23. I made a couple hip quivers for Christmas gifts, basically my first quivers. The first had some issues, and I learned a few things, so the second came out better. I took about 3/4" off the width, changed the way the top fastened to the body from tabs with snaps to slots with rivetted straps (and then went and redid the first), and cut the profile of the top of the quiver a little lower. The edges of the second are a lot straighter (used a straight edge) and the leather is 6/7 oz as opposed to the first which is 7/8 oz. For the second quiver the holes on the back match the holes on the front, the first I would call only serviceable.
  24. After getting some invaluable advice from these forums, this is my first post. I'm making a back quiver--my first--based on a Stohlman (Tandy) design. I'm adding an overlay at the bottom. The quiver is 7/9 oz, the overlay is 4. The plans call for a plug to be sewn in (smaller diameter heavy leather glued on larger diameter lighter piece. The lighter one is then wetted, formed and folded back; glued and then sewn to the quiver). Even without the overlay, may I assume I need to use a curved (upholstery) needle and use a running stitch? Should/can I get by with just gluing the plug? What's the best way to do all this with the overlay? Thanks for any advice.
