“Never go shopping at the BORG while wearing an orange shirt.” -handsawgeek
Ever since I have made the transition to working in a traditional wood shop setting with traditional hand tools, I deemed it fitting that I should have a traditional shop apron, as well.
Since Mrs. handsawgeek is an accomplished seamstress, she was asked if she could assist with this.
Engineering specifications for the apron were drawn up and presented:
Calf length, shoulder straps that cross in the back, a waist tie, and a pair of spacious tool pockets.
She quickly set to work.
To my surprise and delight, here is what she later presented me with:
Not only is the apron of great fit and function, but the chosen material of which it is made is adorned with the logos of my favorite NFL team!
Despite the fact that this group of fellows managed to thoroughly embarrass themselves in a recent ‘Big Game’, I proudly don this piece of apparel each time I enter the shop to do some wood butchering.
I warned you that this blog would be weird…..
Incidentally, sawdustike is well-dressed too, with a warehouse shelf full of wardrobe accessories and spare parts…..
