I had a coworker who worked metal and he felt metalworking to be additive while woodworking is subtractive in concept. Of course, his experience was with welding while mine designing furniture so he only heard me discussing shaping pieces of wood and he joined pieces of metal. But I thought it an interesting insight considering our past discussions.

His approach was to build up a project from pieces of flat or round bars and sheets while I approached projects thinking of ways to cut down and shape boards.
