Herndon, VA, US
Is it cheating? No, of course not. But is it equivalent? I don't think so. If we take your argument to it's logical conclusion, we'd all be buying our furniture from someone else rather than making it ourselves (what could be more "efficient" than that!)
There are two separate "gold standards” in question here: The first, as you point out, is the quality of the furniture you produce, regardless of the methods used. But I suggest that furtherance of the craft is as important if not more so than piece itself. If we lose sight of the latter, we will, in time, undoubtedly lose the former.
This would be great addition to our guild's library!
Great presentation! Like Scott L,I too would would love to see your sketchup drawing of the outfeed table. Would you be willing to share? Thanks
