The video below, part 1 of two parts, shows how any well adjusted person might make a quiver out of PVC pipe and various other materiel. Only two things about this video bother me: its velocity and it makes too much sense.
OK, I definitely need to make a PVC quiver. And share every last detail of the adventure.
This next video is fascinating. The guy makes a quiver out of tree bark (as opposed, I suppose, to dog bark, which I imagine would be more difficult but yield a far lighter product). He takes you carefully through the bark peeling process, but you can skip ahead a ways if you’re over caffienated. There’s a cordage bonus piece in here, too.
Can you believe he used a non-motorized saw to fell that poplar? Must have a lot of time on his hands.
Anyway, I need to try this. A couple trees come to mind. Ah, a third just now came to mind. I’m definitely going to attempt a bark quiver.
See how much stuff you can learn on Youtube?
OK, so now that you know how to do it right, I’ll show you how I do it.
After this photo was taken, the job went south. I cut through the bark once, then twice, then maybe a few more times. The ends frayed, then cracked.
I got the bark off. But not in one unbroken quiver-like whole.
Yeah, this goes down as an unqualified failure. I can use the bark and chunks of wood as, at minimum, fuel for the fire. But what a complete waste of duct tape.
What went wrong?
Well, me for one. But this might have worked if the wood had been just-cut green.
I plan to try this again.
