I'd like to have a good apron to wear when I'm working on those canes . . . am not a carver so am not even certain I could order a woodcarver's apron <joke> - just for protection - me and my clothing from all the wood chips/dust etc.

Any suggestions - such as AVOID this brand, etc?

Thank you

Any Ace Hardware or Harbor Freight around you? They usually have different kinds of aprons. Likewise, big box stores. Check the grill section as well as the wood working section.

I see online Harbor Freight has an all leather welder apron for about $11.

I bought a canvas one, don't recall where, with a leather lower panels. Unfortunately, I do a lot of my carving sitting down, and its too short. Only covers the upper part of my thighs, which isn't much protection. Typically just throw it over my lap.

What I use most for carving and sanding are just 2 large place mats we had sitting around. The fabric is heavy, they have a layer of foam, and I drape one across each leg. They've worked well. Several slashes in them from slipped gouges and knives. I s'pose they look kind of silly, but then, until recently half my tools were in an old cigar box, and the other half in a cleaned out gallon paint bucket.

I am very pleased with a apron I get from Duluth Trading. I have had the same one for 6 years. It is a heavy canvas.
