Proudly announcing our new range of ProDesign woodturners' smocks

Having been online since the late 1990s and many of us practising woodturners for long before that, we would like to think that here at The ToolPost, we know a few things about this great art that could just be invaluable for helping seasoned professionals and bushy-tailed amateurs alike to engage in woodturning happily, successfully and safely. Well, we have certainly brought our considerable experience and knowhow to bear on our latest, ProDesign branded product.

That product is, we are proud to announce, a woodturner's smock that answers many of the concerns that we have had about items in this category over the last few decades. It shows that we are not content to simply complain as one manufacturer after another introduces a new product that fails to address longstanding shortcomings evident on so many woodturners' smocks.  Instead, we wanted to introduce our very own smock that benefits from not only the latest 21st century thinking, but also the common sense of the most seasoned and capable woodturners.

That is why, for instance, we offer our ProDesign woodturners' smocks in chest sizes ranging from 32" to 58", so that ladies, youngsters and more generously-proportioned individuals of any gender or age can comfortably and safely practice their craft. It is also why our smocks incorporate such no-nonsense and undoubtedly useful features as a padded, smooth-lined collar, a double-ended plastic heavy duty zipper, cuffs with Velcro closures and sleeves with real leather wear patches on the elbows.

There's even plenty of storage space provided in our new smock, in the form of a handy pencil pocket - divided into two sections in order to keep your marking tools out of harm's way - on the left sleeve, as well as a pair of generous patch pockets on the rear of the jacket. The latter are strategically located so that they are easy to reach, but do not fill up with shavings as you slave away on your latest turned wood masterpiece.

We are delighted with so many of the little touches to this seemingly simple smock that help to mark it out as not just another addition to an already crowded market but smething worthy of the attention of the most knowledgeable and critical buyer. More information about this proud new part of our product range can be found on the main website of The ToolPost, where you may also find pricing and place your order for swift delivery.
