A unique item, by itself, does not a custom piece make. To me the word “custom” implies a CUSTOMer has requested specific features to the piece. However, that does not prevent a person from making their own custom item so long as the piece being made is intended for use by the person making it. In that way they become their own customer.

An artist who makes a unique item for sale has not built a custom piece, but if he/she has done a self portrait (or for us woodworkers the frame for that portrait) then it IS custom as long as it is intended for their own use.
