Dr Dirt- on the otherhand watch Andrew Pitts furniture maker, he shows his product and they speak for themselves. Fine Woodworking! end of story. Should the craftsman disclose what the percentage of his project consists of CNC, the table saw used, dovetails- hand cut or machined; similar to the auto industry part contents.
Thanks for the video- he talks about himself as a craftsman who uses his hands. Guess what I use my hands in all of my aspects of my work. From hadling the sheet goods, cutting them on a panel saw and placing them on the CNC to finishing. Scott uses his hands on his power carver but what causes his hands to move the grinder. Answer his brain. Compared myself; I use my hands and brain with the software-(CAD) then transfer to knowledge to the machine (CAM). If our brain is experienced and is functing properly the results are a success. Any goof up on the machine, in my case comes from my “brain”Good or Bad”
here’s an aside- Is Sketch up considered a woodworking tool?
