When we think of the literary classics, do we remember if the manuscript was handwritten, typed, or word processed?
Not really. We remember the content of the story above all else. (a.k.a. Creative Writing)

A fine piece of furniture will be appreciated more for what it is than which particular tools were used to arrive at that fine piece.

I use the qualifier “fine” to eliminate mass produced junk from that analogy, fyi.
BTW, I’ve seen both fine furniture and mass produced junk produced on the same machines, so, the machine itself is not the differentiation, per se’. More, it is about the creative influence of the woodworker using the machine, I think.

Now, how you represent the end product, e.g. “hand made”, etc, is an entirely different question, IMHO.
