This was one of Ray Key's roughed out bowls I bought at the Seminar last year. I thought it was about time I did something with it! It's 16" diameter and 4" deep. The outside was a straight forward re-turning to true it up with a little reshaping near the base to form a foot. On the inside I added a wide curved rim with an undercut. The wood has a mixture of olive ash and ripple figure. Finished with a couple of coats of oil for use as a salad bowl.

Elegant, and the wood figuring adds character and an additional source of interest when in use.

Lovely piece of wood and a simple design leaving it near to what Ray left it at. A great loss to the woodturning community

I never even knew he had died! Such a shame, Ray's book "woodturning and design" was my very first turning book and it has been a constant guide ever since, I remember once handling one of his boxes at the Bristol Woodworker show, it was a masterpiece of turning, the lid fit was so precise I had trouble getting it back on, yet once it was correctly located, it just slid into place. A really great woodturner.
