The best type of work glove

work glovesA good set of work gloves can make a hard job go a bit smoother and safer by maximizing your grip and decreasing unwanted vibrations.

Most stores have several styles and materials to choose from. I have found the basic yellow Palomino grain cow hide to be the best choice for me. They can usually be found for less than 10 dollars and will often last longer than pig skin, heavy cloth, or even the new fancy synthetic type.

It's always a good idea to keep an extra set laying around for surprise guest workers. You'll get more wood chopped that way.
