Here’s My Story

Chris Norton

Hi and welcome to Stoney Creek Woodworks and a special corner of the world wide web dedicated to the enriching hobby of woodworking.

I’m Chris Norton, and as a lifelong amateur woodworker with a keen desire to share my passion for this craft with the world, Stoney Creek Woodworks was born.

Woodworking is a personal passion for many and it can give hours of both challenge and satisfaction, making it one of the most rewarding hobbies anyone could be lucky enough to have.

Those of you who consider yourself hobby woodworkers know just how much joy it can bring but also the countless hours you’ve spent researching new products, looking for useful information, or trying to master the techniques that you’ve discovered.

There’s always something new to learn with this craft and it requires a lot of research as well as hands-on action, so having a one-stop shop like this site will hopefully come in handy.

Woodworking requires many different tools and a lot of varied knowledge, whether it’s how to find the right saw or choosing the best wood for your next project.

If you’re just starting out it can be overwhelming knowing what’s what, so with a site like this you can take your time learning the basics in a straightforward way.

My love for the craft of woodworking only continues to grow as the years go by and the knowledge and experience that I amass along the way just have to be shared.

With that in mind, I started this website so I could show others everything I already know and anything new that I discover, hoping to be a reliable and informative source for woodworkers of all skill levels.

This website not only has up to date reviews and buying guides on the latest tools of the trade but also tips and techniques you can use in your own craft.

Whether you’re a beginner weekend hobbyist or take the trade a little more seriously, I hope you’ll find plenty of value at Stoney Creek Woodworks and a way to share your passion with others.
