After having seen Roger's new billion dollar idea, I had to post my custom, stylish, turner-ware.

While doing a bunch of turning a few months ago, I got mighty tired of getting chips down the front of my shirt and in my shirt pocket. I finally implemented what I had thought about for a long long time. A smock, of sorts. I started with a plain T-shirt. I proceeded to cut the back out of it so as to not overheat during the summer months. You can’t see it, but the back is really gone. Leave the entire sleeves so it won’t fall off. The tight neck of the shirt keeps the chips outta my shirt now. And no more chips in my pocket either.

.


It looks like I must have run into something while admiring my new stylish diggs.

I found out after the fact, that my wife had purchased this very shirt to go with my Sundy-Go-To-Meet’in button down white shirt. She was not happy about that.

You are too funny Joe. You had me going there for a minute. LOL. Sounds like a great trade Roger. Ok, go sit by your mailbox and wait for the fifty bucks. It could happen.

Rance, some day, if I ever get phootbucket to work again, I’ll post a picture of my solution to those two problems.
Anyway, here is what I did. I wear a shop coat when turning. I bought a magnetic purse catch and mounted it as the top button and I can easily close my neck off one handed with that little magnet.
For the pockets, I sewed flaps over all 4 of ‘em and those two things seem to work pretty good!

Sounds like another great solution Jim. Please load your pics up to LJ rather than pointing to a PB account though. That way the pics can never become a broken link. Are your pics viewable by others on your PB account? 1) copy them to your computer 2) add img from your computer.

Edit: And no one noticed the right earpiece missing from my stylish Wallyworld glasses.

Hey Rance,

Insteada usin’ your (once clean) t-shirt, you coulda used yor Sunday go ta meetin’ shirt. Put that in backward (everything I know I learnt in kitnergartden) and ya got a collar to keep the shavin’s out with a pocket in back for the back itcher. Don’t need no magnets nether.

Roger, turn them socks inside out for extended wear – now you can send me the fitee bux or yur card numba.
