The Woodwhisper Shop Apron;
Over the years I have been trying a couple of different aprons while working in the shop. The one thing I didn’t like was the strap pulling on my neck. I wasn’t a big fan of the leather ones as they were just too stiff for me. I had a cheap one from Home depot that was only a cpl bucks, but it pulled on my neck too much.. So a cpl weeks ago Blondie was cleaning out my work clothes for the woodshop and mentioned about 10 of my T-shirts are trashed from all the wood glue on it. I wipe my hands on them when gluing up cutting boards trying to get them aligned perfectly.
She mentioned I should look for a shop apron. So I was on Google and searching and reading about for all the different ones. I found one on a web site that I have been on and is responsible for my cutting board addiction. March Spagnuolo (aka Woodwhisper). While reading about it, I was impressed on some of the things he incorporated into this apron.
1st, The straps crisscross on the top so it does not pull on your neck.
2nd,It is easy to put on and strap the back with one click. The straps seem heavy duty and should last for a long time.
3rd, The pockets on top for pencils, reading glasses (new for me Ugh) or ruler Ect. Are a nice touch.
4th, The four pockets on the bottom have flaps on them keeping out unwanted sawdust.
5th, A split in the middle allowing more freedom and movement when bending over or kneeling.
And it just looks cool. I asked Blondie if she could make a shop Apron economically and after looking at this one she said buy it is worth it. Well didn’t have to tell me twice right.
Over all I feel at $49.00 this will serve me well. I have worn it for almost 2 weeks now and like it a lot. So I thought I would share the info with our fellow LumberJocks…
