There are two different aprons I’m giving away this time.
Canadian Home Workshop Magazine Apron
I won this apron when I got my first piece of writing printed in a magazine. I used it for about a year and it has glue stains to prove it.
There are three big (sawdust-collecting!) pockets at waist-level and one small chest pocket. The magazine’s logo is embroidered.
Two adjustable straps go around your neck and waist.
Lee Valley Apron
I got tired of wearing my first apron, but sometime later, decided to give aprons another chance. I bought this apron from Lee Valley (Part #67K1006).
It has two large, side-access pockets near the waist and four smaller pockets on the chest.
This apron utilizes a cross-strap system to hold it to your body.
In the end, I decided that aprons were not for me. Instead, I just wear clothes I don’t mind getting dirty and dusty. Instead of using pockets, I just put things like my carpenter’s pencil and Magic Square down in areas that are kept free of clutter.
If you, unlike me, feel the need for a shop apron, this could be your chance! Let me know which one you’d like (or if you’d be happy with either) by noon, Friday January 10. I will then draw a winner at random. Even if you don’t get this item, remember that there is still much more I want to give away.

Nice aprons! I’ve always been an apron guy. BTW, You’re too nice! I feel like a jerk because I’m going to write a rant in about 10 seconds :)
Are you throwing your name into the hat for an apron?
I appreciate it, but I have an apron, and I would rather you give it to somebody who needed one. Thank you for the offer, though.
I dig the apron because nobody is as skilled as I am at destroying a perfectly good pair of pants
I dislike the apron because, with it, I found that I was skilled at dropping my favourite double square from the top pocket. Do you wish to enter the draw for either apron?
I understand about the irritation of the square falling out of the pocket I often carry pencils in my pocket without clips and every time I bend over out they come (slow learner) I would be happy to win either one. Thanks
I usually only wear aprons while building cabinets and furniture when I need it for rags to wipe glue and dowels and such, but I ALWAYS wear one while staining or spraying/finishing.
Would you like me to put your name in the draw for one or either apron?
always useful to have some protection, would like either one
Definitely interested in the Lee Valley apron. Keep on keeping on!

I would like my name in for the Lee Valley apron I have had one in the past and like the lower pockets for a tape and a square
You’re the winner of the Lee Valley apron. Check your e-mail!
Just stumbled onto your Blog and enjoy it very much. I would be interested in the Lee Valley apron.
I’d like to put my name in for either. Thanks!!
I would love to own either one of your aprons. It’s always a little cold in Toronto this time of year, so I always were one, but my old cotton one has bitten the dust last year, and didn’t get one for
Christmas, what with losing power over the holidays.
I just found your website, very nice furniture! And I need one of these aprons:-)
Wonderful idea of yours!
