Everyone should work forearms unless your lee priest.I see guys that are straight up bigger than me all the time,but i look bigger cause of small bones,i have put on alot of muscle but my arms are 14.5" with a bodyweight of 170,i started at 130 5'8".Does not sound impressive,but i get looked at in long sleeved shirt's,and turn heads in a wife beater.Yet i hear people talk sh!t about 150-170lb guys with 15" arms.

I always thought mine were small. Just measuring at work (headphone wire against ruler, lol) and it's just over 7". Weird. I swear most people have bigger wrists than me.
How do you measure? I measured the smallest part of the wrist, both above and below the big bone bump on the pinky side of the hand.
My ex's dad is a carpenter, and he's an extremely skinny guy, yet his fingers and hands dwarf mine. His grip strength is insane. I see a lot of guys that do lots of manual labor have thick hands and fingers - might be something to all that repetitive work they do. I click on a keyboard all day - no wonder mine are so skinny, lol.

Construction is good for grip strength and forearms.I build fences with my Dad and he has good forearms,he even has the big vein in the back sticking out.I have always had good forearms too,but i still work them 1-3 times a week now.I'm shooting for Lee Priest,Frank Mcgrath forearms.Also huge calves and quads.I think construction is good for calves too from carrying and pushing wheel barrows all the time.I say forearms and calves cause they can be worked more often then other muscles,and still recover.I wonder if it holds me back on other muscles though.......The grass is always greener on the other side.

I work with computers as well. I used to do manual labor. I do not work my forearms, but this is what I have learned...
Every person has at least one muscle that will grow with little to no effort. My muscle just happens to be my forearm. My buddy can look at a rope and his tricep will grow...pisses me off to no end lol.

I have tiny wrists as well, but i have been able to build my biceps to over 2.5x my wrist circumfence. Just because you have small wrists doesnt mean you cant gain plenty of arm mass.

When I did Incline Bench press my wrists have hurt. Now I sometimes on certain exercise use Inzer's wrist wraps/

I have 6.75 wrist, and have a 13" forearm. I was wondering does small wrist, normally mean skinny fingers. I wear a 10.5 in a ring. I am not really sure what the average ring finger is.

Look on the bright side. Thicker wrists would more than likely mean that your ankles would be thicker too. Nobody wants cankles.

I've got a solution!
I recently found an excellent tool for building up your wrists and forearms called the Armory. There's a video on youtube about it. Check it out!

My wrists are 6" and I'm six foot tall. My biceps are 15.75 and people guess they are at least 16.5. So small wrists can be a huge advantage, except when trying to do heavy barbell curls and they hurt like hell.
