Perhaps the nicest thing about our company is that it is built on a 30-year friendship between three people – Paul Gordon, Scott Gamron, and Sedny Attia.
Welcome To GordonsToolsBlog!
My name is Paul Gordon. I’m the Editor-in-chief of this blog. I am obsessed with finding the latest and various tools to make work easier and more productive. I spend tons of hours researching, and testing tools to recommend the Best Choice for the pros and regular homeowners. On this website, I share my experience.
This blog is my editorial soapbox for all topics related to woodworking, painting, DIY, tools, gear, and carpentry. I am a professional in DIY and woodworking, passionately devoted to the use of traditional tools and methods.
I am positive I will say things that offend, critique, challenge, amuse you, and hopefully, if I’m lucky, assist you in learning something about the craft we both love. If you agree with what I say, excellent! If not, that’s great, too! It is impossible to agree on everything – and we shouldn’t! Passionate discourse is the spice of learning. That said, if you happen to disagree, feel free to leave a comment but don’t be rude about it. No one likes a blowhard.
We welcome all inquires and wanted to remind you that we are only an email away. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have.
Let’s be friends:

Paul started woodworking 30 years ago, making craft pieces for family and friends. This hobby soon developed into a part-time business designing and building handcrafted furniture and cabinets.
He has taken coursework at the internationally reknowned Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina where he received training from some of America’s premier woodworkers. For 12 years, as the facilities manager of a local college, he was involved in all types of renovation, restoration, and new construction. One of the campus buildings, “Old Main”, predated the civil war and was built using techniques of joinery and materials that are seldom seen in modern construction.
To maintain this building required that he and his crew hand-make many decorative and structural pieces to match those on the original structure. “Old Main”, developed in Paul an appreciation for the skills and craftsmanship of its 19th-century builders. In 2000, Paul retired from college to open his shop and pursue his love of woodworking full time.

“I believe that art and expression will take a new leap”.
Scott Gamron was born and raised in Europe. His fascination for different cultures took him, in his early years, all over the world. After returning from South America, where he was working and traveled for over 10 months, he became a professional tile setter. He established a company that specialized in tile and plumbing.
“I believe in creativity, finding beauty in the unexpected. In my spare time, you can find me re-purposing old furniture pieces, creating, thrifting, or just planning what project to conquer next.”
