The canvas apron has an adjustable neck strap and adjustable waist strap. There is a leather chest pocket for inserting a small piece of wood for whittlers who like to hold the work piece against their chest when they carve. The wood spreads the pressure so that a painful chest does not result from this procedure. There is also a pocket for two knives and a pencil pocket. The bottom of the apron flips up and is held in place with Velcro to form a pouch to catch wood chips. When taking the apron off, a little Velcro tab can be activated to prevent spilling all the chips that have been caught. To increase the rigidity of the pouch edge the supplied plastic tubing can be inserted into a tube that has been sewn around the outside of the bottom.
