I agree with Berni41 - it is only cheating (or lying) if you misrepresent your methods.
I have not encountered anyone using the word cheating in woodworking (at least not in many years) and no one on this blog seems to feel this is an issue.
Cheating is a terrible word - stealing answers on a test, undermining the rules of a game, taking steroids in sports - how do you use the word cheating in woodworking? You undermine the concept of "cheating" when you use it in this context with woodworking.
