Spend a few hours with Tim Manney and your head will be brimming with things you need to check out—great furniture makers, woodworkers, and tool makers, but also musicians, writers, and filmmakers. His taste in music runs from Mississippi John Hurt to Peggy Lee, from Tom Waits to Chance the Rapper. Having seen the impeccable quality of the furniture and spoons and tools he makes, you’ll be in a great rush to follow up on his recommendations. Manney, who began carving spoons while in college in North Carolina, apprenticed with chairmaker Curtis Buchanan in Tennessee, and collaborates with Peter Galbert of Massachusetts on Windsor-related tools. Manney’s current shop is in a large old mill building in Brunswick, Maine.
