Topic tags/keywords: shop apron apron shop attire

Since I have made many projects for my wife I only found it fitting that she make something for me, besides dinner that is. I have always wanted a nice shop apron and since my wife is an experienced seamstress it was logical to me that she could make me one. She did a lot of research on the design and wanted to provide me with an apron that would not only be suitable for normal woodworking but would also be good to use during the finishing process. So, she made me a reversible apron that has a a vinyl laminate on cotton for use during finishing and then reverses to cotton twill canvas for normal usage.

Well, I declare, Randy. I believe that you may set a new fashion style in the world of woodworking. No telling how many of those your wife could make and sell. Tell her nice work.

The pattern in the first pic kinda reminds me of some armour you might see at a Medevial Fair.

Pretty cool!
