There are a couple threads on this site about some that I've built.....

Thanks, that’s one I found. Looking more for Howard Hill style. Seems there are a couple ways to lace them up.

Best info I found was scattered in various threads at the Leatherwall, by Nate Steen of Sunsethill fame. I think he goes by the latter on the forum. They are pretty easy to make if you have any questions. A lot of the price is tied up in the leather.

Seems there are different thoughts on lace up. I have Dave Millers book with the way he was taught by John Schultz. I took Nate Steens advice and got a side of English Bridle leather. Yes it was pricey but really no more than a side of Latigo I got some years back. I leaving off the big pouch I used to make and attach. Just finished up making a pattern from card stock.

I know a whole side will make a few quivers. I have someone asking for a quiver so that will leave me enough for a least another side quiver and maybe a flyrod tube cover or two. I may go over to another Rec center in our community that has a leather workers club. If nothing else they have a big enough table to lay out the side on. They also have a sewing machine for leather. I was thinking about making a copy of that stitched quiver I saw Hill wearing in some photos.

Finally finished. I made a couple mods after a try out. Works good.
