Mike, you added the word “Creative”, conditioning “writing”...
In this case & question, “woodworking” is not conditioned… assuming all woodworking…
If your question had been “Is typing considered to be writing”, then, of course typing is just a mechanized way of writing. BUT, when you add “Creative” writing, it changes the whole question.
Like “Is using a CNC machine, Creative hierloom furniture Woodworking?” ... Not quite the same.
Using a CNC on wood is woodworking (good or bad woodworking).
Using a typewriter to write is writing (good or bad writing)
Using a typewriter to write is NOT necessarily Creative writing.
Just imho… LOL

Hey Joe, I’m glad you caught my “conditioner” use, as you put it. It was/is meant to spark conversation with/of those who constantly think that woodworking itself, must be “inspired” or “creative” just in order to qualify as WOODWORKING.

Of course we know that:
  • Hand-tool woodworking CAN BE “INSPIRED” or “CREATIVE”
  • Power-tool woodworking CAN BE “INSPIRED” or “CREATIVE”

HOWEVER, that does not mean either of the above actually is, could be, or is not. And the same can be said of CNC woodworking. So Joe, we are on the same page here and in agreement. 8-)
