So in thinking about this I came up with no real definition. At first I thought it had to be something you or someone else designed so nothing that was produced from a set of plans. But then I thought what if you customize someone elses plans. So then I got to thinking well as long as you build it yourself (ie no CNC machines…i almost cried the first time I went into a big “custom” millshop and almost every function being done was on on programmed machines which to me doesn’t make it much of a craft). But then I though if the CNC does the cutting and you do the building is it custom built? So I guess the best definition I have so far is like what other said about it not being mass produced.
