Felt quiver

Step by step guide

Lasercut and engrave your individual quiver out of felt and wood, and let your arrows hit the bull's eye.

Preparation

Required material:

  • 4 mm Polyesterfelt in any color
  • 3.5 mm solid wood alder
  • wool in any color
  • sticky tape

Used Trotec Laser:

  • Speedy 400
  • 80 watts
  • 2.0 inch lens

Tip:

Use a vacuum table with the honeycomb cutting tabletop to remove dust and residue from the surface of the material.



Step by Step

Step 1: Design

Import the PDF file into Corel Draw and select model you wish to use. Then design for either felt or wood (see the tabs below the working area in Corel Draw).


Step 2: Laser parameters

Felt:

Engraving: Power: 33% - Speed: 50% - Frequency: 500 ppi - Air Assist: ON
- Advanced: Optimized Quality
Cutting: Power: 40% - Speed: 2% - Frequency: 1000 Hz - Air Assist: ON

Wood:

Engraving: Power: 60% - Speed: 50% - Frequency: 500 ppi - Air Assist: ON
Cutting: Power: 100% - Speed: 1.8% - Frequency: 1000 Hz - Air Assist: ON


Step 3: Laser cut and engrave felt and wood

Before you begin with the cutting and engraving process, be sure to cover the edges of the cutting table not covered with leather or felt with cardboard and sticky tape. This way the felt is properly fixed for laser cutting and engraving.
You can adjust the size of the felt in CorelDraw according to the length of the arrows you will be putting into your quiver. Our sample is best suited for very long arrows.
Send the file with the correct size to your laser cutter. After you've taken the felt out of the laser, put your hardwood board inside. Now send the file for laser cutting and engraving the bottom part of the quiver to the laser.


Step 4: Sewing the pieces

Next you have to sew the round wooden plate and the felt along the holes together. Take the side with the pattern and sew it onto the wooden plate. Make sure the engraving will be on the outside. Sew the felt along the length and the remaining holes at the top together. Our quiver is ready for your next archery training session!
