I have a canvas welders apron that my wife wishes I would wear more often than I do but I have just never been able to get in the habit of wearing one.

For my wood shop activities, the pockets are more important than the specific fabric. I just checked my apron and found the following items: 4" square, 12' tape measure, eraser, chalk, flash light, extra pencil, and magic marker. Each person is different so your apron is very personalized.

I bought the nylon fabric apron made by Husky and I tried several times to wear it but I hated it, it was so stiff and not flexible at all, so I bought a Lee Valley canvas one and I love it. It is the perfect size, the pockets are great and in my opinion a key factor; it's comfortable. When something is uncomfortable we usually don't use it. I gave the Husky one to a student .

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.
