  • I do the wire splicing for 2 locally based Historic ships, nobody seems to have the know how, anyway, the strands tend to flick back and savage my wool shirts, that and getting tar over my clobber.

    I really didn't want to get pushed into wearing an apron but I took a couple of curved, crooked knife hits one day that really had a sting to them ( I got cut, right thru my shirt). Now, there's more than a dozen scrapes on the canvas where I still get hit.
    2-3 centuries ago, your sort of tradesman probably wore an apron for the same reasons that you will.

    I carve with the crooked knives common to the Pacific Northwest native carvers. Almost always pull strokes so there's a chance of getting hit in the chest. That wrecks shirts and stings a little. The heavy canvas apron is a good protector, if nothing else.
    Hi, R.V. Reference Pockets on the inside of the apron , is that so as not to foul the workpiece ? Regards Ceeg

    No, the guy doing the sewing knows I'm a wood carver. He decided that pockets would only fill up with chips and shavings. Now I just brush off. Sweep up once a month or whenever the cat starts to look seriously at the chip pile. The concept has actually worked out as well as I could imagine.
