Use of a CNC machine is just the next evolution. Does it take any less imagination to create objects using CNC vs. more "established" methods? No. The creativity is there as is the vision of the end piece and the process involved.
The key thin that people have to grasp is that a CNC is as much a tool as is sharp chisel, a mallet, a table saw or scores more. The tools simply make the task of the craftsman easier.
Do we deride the craftsman that uses power tools over one that prefers to human powered? No. Why? Because it is accepted and has been for some time now. No two craftsmen have the same methods to achieve same end.
In the end, yes.. Fine Woodworking is ready for CNC.
