Hi Jeff,
I agree with you. As a professional woodworker for 25+ years, I still learn every day. It is thanks to constructive criticism that I have been able to achieve the standard where I am now. I was not always receptive to such criticism, but most times I listened and applied some of it, to my ultimate benefit. This criticism should never be construed as negative, but as a very positive thing, as it is most times well meaning, and for the benefit of all. Everybody has got a different perspective or view of the same project so there can be so many different ways to do the project.
I am in favour of constructive criticism, and take it as well meaning and instructive. I am sure many lumberjocks, amateur and professional alike, can learn from this.
