I might think of it like music.

Musicians use the tools they need to make the music that’s inside their head. For some it has to come from a computer. Others abhor it.

The rhythmic precision and pitch / tone perfection might be perfect for a purpose, or maybe it will lack a needed feeling and leave the tones flat faced and mechanical.

I think computer controlled machining has a place is in mass production and precision specialties like wooden gears and screws.

Some crafts can really be eye catching with the precise repetition that CNC can deliver on a big scale.
Yet, much CNC work is flat and mechanical, without human engagement.

Anyhow, my office desk came from IKEA , woodworking’s king of CNC production.
