DIY Extended Archery Tab

Today I simply want to introduce my 'DIY Extended Archery Tab'. The design is inspired by a tab that a guy named greyarcher1 showed in one of his YouTube videos. It is made of four layers of thin nubuck leather, glued together with contact cement. Furthermore you need some rubber band and two string stoppers to make one by yourself.













The following picture shows, how to wear that tab. One rubber band goes around your middle finger, the other one goes around your wrist. Change the length of the rubber bands with the string stoppers to adjust it to your prefered measurements.





















The last picture can be used as a stencil. Just print it out and transfer the form to a piece of leather. The given sizes are perfect for a (my) medium sized hand. Just scale it up or down to adapt it to your hand size.


















That's it for today. I hope you liked it - stay curious!
