Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Custom Workshop Apron!

Adam makes his ideal workshop apron from scratch in today’s build, after having recently discovered the joys of working with a shop apron in the cave. Made of leather and waxed canvas, this apron addresses all of Adam’s tool carrying needs with streamlined pocket arrangements, durable straps, and is fitted for his own body. Follow along to learn how you can pattern and sew your own apron, and we’d love to see how you carry your tools while working in your own shops!

  1. I love the fact that Adam wants to raise the top of his apron some and then he immediately says that he wants to scoop neck it and it ends up back where it was.

  2. hey Adam, I was just contacted by “Adam Savage personal blog” on facebook inviting me for something and asking me for my personal information. Just wanted to make sure its really you and not a scammer.

    Are you inviting people for a “fan list” if not, there is something fishy going on.

  3. Honestly, when I see someone wearing a farrier’s apron who isn’t a farrier, I almost feel like that’s someing who is in denial about their desire to just wear bib overalls.

  4. That was a phishing attempt by an imposter account. We had Facebook pull it down as soon as we saw it (the same day). Sorry about that. Are you still seeing the account?

  5. I couldn’t help but notice the buckle Adam chose is widely understood to be the type hidden behind the false aluminum buckle on the Mandalorian’s gun belt. Just saying… We have already seen a Mando helmet in the background in a previous video. I wonder if we’ll see a costume build?

  6. Is there any particular reason Adam ended up not going with the beautiful golden straps? The green is fine, I guess, but that original color was lovely.
