4 weeks ago First custom order from my relocated shop complete 🎉 This @kimberscanes Pro Model included a flat platform in addition to the standard blocks on 36” posts, which made for an altogether unique balancing experience. Moving forward, I’m going to be focusing on unique orders like this one, and taking some creative initiative on ideas that I want to bring to life 👍 I have one week left where I’ll be working on #kimberscanes full-time, and in that time I’ll be catching up on all of my open orders that were backed up due to my move. Thank you SO much to those of you who’ve been so patient with me as the last couple of months have put my production on hold, it’s been a whirlwind of change and there’s more coming down the pipe 🙏 #motivationmonday#trysomethingnew#changes
1 month ago #FailFriday 😝 Swipe for the evolution of a failure to consider the consequences of my actions. A strong pike keeps my pants pockets stretched nice and tight across my butt, whereas the combination of an open hip angle plus pants that are a bit loose puts any items therein at risk. But on the bright side, it was such a nice stacked line that the phone dropped straight down, bouncing off the top of my hand before landing on the concrete (and I didn’t even fall over) 😄 All this backstory to say that I’ve finally updated my Pro Model listing to include photos of all the types of shapes that I can offer ☺️👍 Happy weekend everyone - I’ll be trying to get as much work done as I can in between putting up drywall downstairs 👍 #smashedthroughawalllastnight#thedustylife
1 month ago Something of an atypical #tbt share, but it’s got a couple points of relevance so bear with me: this #throwbackthursday post earmarks the announcement of the inclusion of #stallbars for sale in my shop, two years-ish ago ☺️ I’m now announcing that stall bars have been removed as a standing item in my shop. The shipping of these items across the country is something that I have very little control over, and because the satisfaction of my customers is my biggest concern, this inability to ensure safe arrival is simply too hard for me. You may still contact me about the ability to purchase stall bars and it’s possible that I can work something out for you 👍 On a related note, I am selling my personal set of stall bars since we are moving into a new house and I’ll need to make a new set that fits these ceilings ☺️ If you’re local to #SLC, and interested in a discounted set of fully assembled stall bars, please message me! And a last related note, we are moving into a new house and my shop is moving with us. Please have patience with me y’all, I’m going to do my best to keep things rolling for next couple weeks, but we’re also installing all manor of housewares and outfitting the garage to be tolerable as a new shop (no insulation 😱😨😓) so there’s just a whole lot of moving parts right now. I appreciate your patience, and wish everyone the happiest #NewYear 💛🎉 #2019#startedwithabang#kimberscanes . . .
Exciting news 🎉 I spent all day working on a new item for my Etsy shop. So many people have asked, and I'm finally excited to announce that I'm going to start selling #stallbars 🙌 They are truly tremendous tools for building an enormous range of flexibility-based skills and of course full-body strength maneuvers.
2 months ago Last minute announcement that never received its proper due: I now offer #pinchblocks in my shop ☺️🎉💪 Pinch blocks are a simple and super effective way to improve your #gripstrength. These lightweight blocks offer two depths per block and come in 3 sizes (small, medium, and large). No block depth is the same across all 3 sizes, so an order of the full set will equip you with a ton of different options! Each block includes a permanently and securely mounted eye hook for adding additional weight to the block via a hook or carabiner (not included). These blocks start at $18, and if you order with the next 36 hours, I can get them in the mail for #Christmas delivery 👍 #kimberscanes#kimbersclimbingtoys#rockclimbing#humpday
2 months ago Wait until the end for the #kimberscanes#cameo 😋 This week’s #tbt showcases one of the many ways this man has supported me over the last two years of running this business. Eternally #grateful 💛🙏 #Repost@yellowkimber
We hadn't played with #h2h in Forever and I feel like it went pretty damn well 🙌 And in fact, all of this was a repeat take, since the camera died on us the first time. It's amazing how subconscious the balance adjustments in a handstand have become for me - I used to be super conscious of when I was balancing myself in #handtohand, and would try to keep my wrists as immobile as possible. When we came down from the first #reversehandtohand Blair told me he could feel me making corrections the whole time. No wonder it felt so casual 🙄😜 Those damn lights though 😠 and check out the modification I made to my @KimbersCanes so that I could match Blair's arm height! 💪 #flexfriday#tgif#fridaysareforacro#lotus#undone#andwedidntevenfalldown 🙌
2 months ago At 11:30 pm last night, I dropped off the 18 orders that I completed in the last 10 days, including a bonus placeholder delivery of #handstandblocks that will precede the post-Christmas arrival of the coolest set of handstand canes I’ve yet to make (I know I say this all the time 😝). This officially clears my docket for Christmas delivery, and that couldn’t feel better as we hit the road for a week to my favorite place on earth in celebration of my birthday next week. After we return, I have all of 6 days in town to prepare for leaving for holiday travel through the end of this year, so this was it, folks - anyone wanting Christmas canes will have to contact me about a workaround, because there’s just not any more time. I COULD NOT have accomplished this miracle without the help of my amazing partner, the man behind the camera here and on many other countless occasions. He has supported me, run my tools, held my hand, and generally made life bearable as I worked through the hardest week of this year, and I simply cannot express how much I appreciate him. I am going to thank him now by spending the next week NOT working, and loving every minute with him 💛💛💛 Stay tuned for photos of some of the amazing toys that shipped out this week! #kimberscanes#grateful#thankyou and a special thank you to @fedex for being open 24 hours. Seriously. THANK YOU 🙏
2 months ago My only regret about this set was the lack of photos that do it justice 😍😫💛 I completed 3 Pro Models in a mad dash out the door for Thanksgiving Travel last week, and among them was this matched set in #bubinga, the most stunning set I’ve yet to build 😍💛 The solid base for use at home and the matching travel base for on-to-go training share a single pair of blocks and interchangeable posts, providing this customer in California with a flexible upgrade to a set of exercise props bought online, which exceed their convenient functionality only with the beauty of their form. This wood was originally listed for sale in my shop back when I first opened up for business, but I took it down since I never got any interest in it. I may have to put it back up for my own sake 🤩 The custom engraving is filled with black resin and I’m told is Japanese for #balance 🙏 #motivationmonday#woodworking#handstandcanes#kimberscanes#somanychristmasorderstogo 😱
3 months ago Last call for #Christmas delivery! But this time I’m pairing it with an announcement - this fun little guy is available in time for the #holidays 😍 If any of you have been around since last year, you may remember the awesome set of #candycanes awarded to a lucky winner of a #handstandchallenge hosted over here. This set is my homage to the glory that was that one-of-a-kind creation, and this beauty showcases some of the Coolest #curlymaple I’ve ever had the luxury to work with 🤩 This set is available in either the fixed base construction or the travel base option, and there is only ONE, so check it out now using the link in my bio if you’re looking for something special this #holidayseason! And just once more, today is the LAST DAY to make a purchase for delivery on any item in my shop before the end of the year 👍 #TGIF y’all, we made it 😱 #longestweekever#somuchaccomplished#stillsomuchtodo#kimberscanes#woodworking#candycane#christmascandy#getit? 🤣😂😝😜
3 months ago #TBT to when I had time to put together snazzy promo videos in between orders 🤣 In reality, when this post was originally made over on @yellowkimber, I never imagined I’d have made over 800 sales in two years - or that I’d even be doing this for two years 😱 I’m not sure what 2019 will bring for @kimberscanes yet, but the last two years have taught me a TON, about myself and my potential, and have equipped me with skills that I’m beyond excited to put to the test in the coming months 😍 Thank you to everyone who supported me with this endeavor, with either kind words and comments, helpful advice and the loan of power tools and expertise, or the purchasing of my products - you’re all amazing examples of what a village (even an electronic one) can do for one small person 💛🙏💛🙏💛 #gratitude#thankful#Repost@yellowkimber ・・・
It's been the busiest week getting all of the @kimberscanes orders that came in over the holiday finished up and ready to ship out 🙌 I personally test each set that I make for stability and comfort, so you can rest assured that your set will be as awesome as mine 👌 I like to have a little fun with it if I can, especially because it's hard to say goodbye to some of these, as gorgeous as the wood is 😍 This is sped up x4, you can check out the #realtime video up on my #YouTube channel, link in bio 💛 As my docket clears, I'm ready to start working on more canes and blocks - who wants new toys to play with?? 😜 #kimberscanes#handstandcanes#carpentry#havefunwithit
