Eastern Woodlands style quiver in lashed Cattail stalks
CHIPPEWA STYLE QUIVER $75
This replica quiver was inspired after examination of a Chippewa quiver in the collections of the Smithsonian Institution. This poplar bark back quiver is made to wear across the back or across the shoulder, and can hold about a dozen arrows. It is around 21 inches long, around 4 inches in diameter at the top rim, and features a shoulder strap of leather. The braided strap features a sliding knot that is easy to tie off for adjustment of length. Poplar bark is extremely tough, and offers more protection for arrows than flexible leather. The traditional arrows shown in the picture are not included. For more information and ordering, SEE ITEM
HICKORY BOW STAVE $45
This stave measures 68.5 inches long, and is 2 inches for most of the lengh, tapering to 1 and 3/4 at one end. It has been cured to reach a great starting moisture content of between 10 and 12 percent, and it has done so without any checking or warping. The ends were lightly sealed with wood glue early during the process. This is a premium Grade A stave for those wanting to try traditional bowmaking. There are no internal knots that would inhibit this bows from fitting in almost any design in North America. Hickory has proven to be a great wood for North American straight stave Native style bows, and appears to be the most widely used for such. The bark on the back has been removed to help the drying process. Only thin patches show of the cambium bark layer, proudly showing it is not a factory bow.
