Woodworker: Timothy Gorman
Gorman’s turning (8 in. dia. by 9 in. tall), affectionately titled “The Chubby One,” is one in a series of turnings from a single piece of spalted maple. The other materials are Honduran mahogany, ebony, and makore. Gorman installed a segmented lining, leaving the spalted maple’s natural character on the outside.
