The word custom in today’s society has come to mean many things such as, tradition, practice, convention, norm, routine, habit, ritual, practice, routine, pattern, way, trade, business, patronage, clientele, market, or client base. While the opposite would be novelty, craft, or unusual. Then you have custom built meaning made to order. All designed to catch the eye and appeal to entice the customer. So in the commercial world its saying that your woodworking is a unique product that is hard to find elsewhere in commercial arena’s. For myself as a hobbyist I prefer to use the word crafted even if the piece should happen to be a commissioned piece.
