It's fair to say that nothing I do is insta. When I wanted a kayak to do some exploring on the coast near where I live, I spent two months of the paddling season building a skin-on-frame kayak. This winter when I got into cross country skiing, I spent most of the ski season making myself a new pair of skis. When I get in the kitchen to cook dinner, I usually start by caramelizing onions to a deep, rich brown.
After a year of goading and encouragement by friends, (mostly from Caleb James) I recently joined Instagram. If you look to the right on this blog, you will now see a link to my Instagram feed. I've been posting for a couple of weeks and so far it's been fun. It gives me the opportunity to share the small things that I wouldn't write a blog post about and I'm starting to see some interesting woodworking that I would have no other way to see.
If you want to follow what I am posting there my username is tim.manney. You can use the Instagram app or just click the photo link to the right which will take you to my feed. Expect a lot of spoon carving, toolmaking, chairs, and skin on frame kayaks. I'll try to keep the thigh gap selfies to a minimum. Promise.
I'll also be posting pictures of tools for sale when I have them in stock, or when I use materials that are not my standard options, like these curly maple reamers I've been finishing up.
This batch is all spoken for, but I'll I have about 12 more in a couple of weeks. They will be $135 each. Email me or comment if you are interested.
