Writer Profile for Dick Veitch
Dick VeitchSouth Auckland, New Zealand
My woodturning is focused on a number of competitive exhibitions each year. The rules of each exhibition dictate many of the forms that may be turned (such as bowl, box, hollow form, platter, vase) and may also include a sculptural or ornamental category which allows great freedom of expression. Rules are made to be stretched so the bowl, box, hollow form, platter, and vase may become stretched to artistic and functional limits.
I do like to see what different woods are like on the lathe, to test different tools, and to test other things which are proclaimed “wonderful” without the support of a real test. I also gain a lot of pleasure from participating in local, and more distant, woodturner gatherings where I assist with planning and tutoring. I also contribute to the South Auckland Woodturners Guild website and write for Creative Wood, New Zealand’s magazine for woodworkers.
