Took a few more pics over the weekend of my apron for those who are interested in making one. ;-) I’ve already started a list of things to address with on version two.

A few months back, Christopher Schwartz at Popular Woodworking was looking for someone to design the ideal apron. Maybe you should get in touch with him and sell him one!

I made one for my husband years ago, but I never use one. I guess I just prefer spending half my time looking for where I’ve left the marking tools!

I looked at Chirs’s design and what I found funny was, he’s really trying to get back to basics with his tools and woodworking but his apron is very complicated. ;-) His list of things he carries seemed a bit over the top but I guess he’s working in a larger shop then I have. The farthest something can be from me is 10 feet maybe. ;-)

As for wearing what you work, by not using an apron. I never used to use one but not that I do I like it. It also a good safety item when dealing with anything that might catch your clothing.
