Wow! Really nice leather work Lightly!!!
And I'll be damned...you posted a picture!!! You're one tough lady, after all my offers to help out or show how to do it...you went ahead and in proud solitude got it on your own. I'm glad the vid. helped, but knowing how it is with computers - you technically got it all by yourself and that's what really matters.
This makes me want to make more videos on our forum's capabilities ... just let me know what feature you found interesting and I'll do it as soon as I get a free minute.
Also... I'm with JMC...it seems like there was a strap in the back with two riveted or in some other way attached - belt loops. This can be barely seen(shadowed out outline) in the pic I found in the Higgins Armoury Museum gallery on Flikr.
You can barely see it, but it's a definitely there...hope some one has a better pic...perhaps in the crossbow books there might be a few words on the subject.
As for tips up.....if I was riding and wanted to strike fear into some one I would not pass an opportunity to flash the arsenal of fire starters, broad heads, bodkins, and my favorite "rope cutter"....it really deserves a better name though...decapitator, or grim reaper, or even just ripper...
I just can't get enough of this one pic of Mr SAM's crossbow bolt collection in this topic >>> (link)
You guys know some one who does custom bolts right(i think it was a member by the name of Silly Person that specialized in those), perhaps you have some pictures of their work and a link to their site, so I can add them to the Crossbowyer (Thanks for the term Lightly) links panel I'm putting together.
All in all ...Lots of REP points for you guys
and I hope these quivers leave your shop in a snap.
If you have something in stock or left over from any event where dorks run around with rubber band crossbows shooting pool noodles at each other...definitely post that stuff in the Buy/Sell/Trade section...you will be amazed how many hits that section gets(even though there is nothing there
)...no guaranty it will work wonders, but people do look in there.
Good stuff, hope to see more cool stuff like that...perhaps a dagger sheath/quiver combo. Ivo
PS: I was pounding my self in the chest saying I'll come to one of your events in March, but I must bring my apologies - Lab has gotten so busy over the last few weeks that I don't even have time to pick my head up ...unfortunately that will keep me from enjoying your company this one time...so much work it blows my mind.
