I like to compare woodworking to cooking. A great cullinary school can teach someone the essentials to be a chef, but it’s up to the chef to make something that the school never taught him. In other words, a woodworker or chef must be inspired to create something great; the school can only go so far. This does not detract from the teacher one bit. The two become a partnership.
True there are some (many?) who are in it for the money and I try to avoid buying what I feel doesn’t add much to the value of woodworking. Think convenience foods vs home cooking.
