This apron incorporates lots of feedback from woodworkers at Lumberjocks. Having asked for input on what Lumberjocks carry in their aprons and also getting feedback on what they like and don't like about a shop apron I have incorporated some of their feedback into Prototype #4.
Biggest design concept added are flaps over pockets to keep woodchips out. Magnet added to upper pocket to hold 6" scale in place.
Listed below are the various items that Lumberjocks said they carried in their aprons. It was interesting to note that almost everyone carried about 6 items each which confirms the need for only two lower pockets.
Thank you Lumberjocks for your feedback.
