Overflow, Part XVI

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.

And if you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe to my blog so you can be notified as soon as I post something new! Please tell your friends about my Overflow program.

    1. Tohner,

      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?


      1. Chris,
        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
        Keep truckin

  1. 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.

  2. Definitely interested in the Lee Valley apron. Keep on keeping on!

    Thanks, Michael

  3. 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

  4. Just stumbled onto your Blog and enjoy it very much. I would be interested in the Lee Valley apron.

  5. 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.

  6. I just found your website, very nice furniture! And I need one of these aprons:-)
    Wonderful idea of yours!

I would be delighted if you left a comment!
