Well, yes!

It does take both. And it takes both whether you work with handtools or powertools. Why even use handtools? You could just chew the wood :) Debating what tools you use runs the risk of ignoring what you do with those tools.

Your complaint really just indicates how much more efficient powertools are; you feel like you are just setting up tools only because they make the actual task of shaping wood sooo much faster that it has become the smallest part of woodworking. I’lll take that; I only got a short time here.
