Posted on Think I want a branding iron. Is "HAND CRAFTED" considered 100% hand tools?

I feel like this conversation comes up in slightly different variations about once per week. My thoughts echo what has been said. As soon as you bring CNC into the mix, it is no longer hand crafted. Sure, there is still much skill, albeit a slightly different skill, involved creating the drawings and tool-paths, but IMO that is not handcrafted. Using power tools to create something, by hand, is perfectly acceptable.
