Pfft. ALL woodworking is cheating. If you guys were better gardeners, you could just coax a tree to grow directly into the form you desire...
Seriously, though, the only cheating in woodworking is to mis-represent your efforts. Cutting dovetails with a router isn't cheating, as long as you don't say that you cut them by hand.
Woodworking isn't a contest, with rules. Woodworking is a journey, and a multitude of paths one can take. If you are satisfied with your results, and you enjoyed the route you took to get there, that's all that matters.
