The book catalogues the collaboration project of part turned pieces from the late Ray Key’s workshop which were sent to turners around the world to finish in their own style. There are 128 pages with photos of the 118 finished pieces and ‘before’ photos of the part turned pieces used to create them. Each turner has contributed some of their recollections of Ray and an insight into how they finished their piece.

The book is an A4 sized hardback and is a unique record of an inspiring golbal collaboration project.

The book can be shipped worldwide, and group orders for clubs can be fulfilled.  Contact the AWGB for details.  Please allow up to 28 days for delivery.
