The design of this woodturner’s smock has evolved from years of workshop experience in our Skill Centre. The main aim was to produce a comfortable and practical overall for wearing all day long in the workshop. Made from hard wearing cotton twill it has a full length front zip with a closure kept in place with hook and loop tabs. The high collar has fastenings to keep the shavings out and a second tab to keep it open if you want some ventilation. The short sleeves mean there is no loose material near the moving workpiece. Tabs on the sleeves allow you to adjust the fit on the upper arm. There is a small breast pocket to keep your pencil handy and two pockets at the rear, where they won’t fill with shavings and sawdust.
