    Do you wear a carpenter’s apron or a shop apron, (one that covers one’s entire front) when you are doing any woodwork inside your shop?

    Yup, I have my old favorite blue denim shop apron. I've had it since the early 70's. It's an old Montgomery wards shop apron with a pocket on the chest for a pencil and such. The tie strings wore out on it so I replaced them with some strings from my home depo days apron. So now I have the vintage Montgomery ward blue denim apron with bright orange tie strings. I wear it all the time in the shop, gluing, finishing, and sometimes turning.

    I do not use a shop apron around the shop, but I do wear an apron when I wash dishes.

    I do. Depending on what I'm doing. Have 2 cloth ones made from old drop cloths from my painting career days. Currently waiting on a traded for (labor) light weight leather apron, geared towards lathe work with a elastic type neck hole, from a leather worker buddy.

    No shop apron, but I do have turning smock to try to keep the shavings from going down my shirt and the CA off my clothes. It’s too late for many of my sweatshirts for the latter.

    No but that is a great idea. I've ruined a lot of clothes coming home and rushing into a glue up.

    i have a leather one that I use when running TS- just in case- a huge long lasting bruise to right hip taught me it is wise to think ahead....

    Nope, but I do have a coupl’a Shopsmith aprons— were ok...... but so blasted hot.
    For shopwear it’s T shirts, preferably with a snug neck that I buy from clearance racks— no guilt when too dirty/can’t clean.
