JOHN TOPHAM - WOODTURNER
There is a lot of experience that goes into my woodwork. During my 34 years in the explosives industry with CIL/Orica, I have travelled extensively throughout Canada, Africa, the U.S., the Caribbean and South America.
Since my retirement in 2002, I have been consulting for Austin Powder Co. of Cleveland. My other interests are photography and guitar. My passion for turning evolved from my formal training in Fine Arts. I have been turning for a dozen years; a founding member of the Summerland Woodturners Group. We meet monthly at a member\'s shop, a social time devoted to turning, safe work practices, products, tools, design and finishing
