When I first started turning and saw turners' smocks in the catalogs, I thought it was kind of funny - I wasn't trying to make a fashion statement, I was just wanting to make some pepper mills :)
Lately though, being covered in wood shrapnel after working on a project is getting kind of old. As a side note, it does underscore the need for eye protection when turning. It's clear that these shards are coming off at high velocity, because they're actually stuck into the material of my shirt and pants like little spears. Back to the origin of my inquiry...... I'd like to have a smock or apron that's impervious to shavings. Are there certain smocks that you seasoned turners prefer?
