Recently, I was looking at additional learning opportunities for woodturning and I discovered the Marc Adams School of woodworking in Franklin, Indiana. I thought this was a very interesting topic for miniaturists that are selling and collecting, and then wondered if there is a need to consider if an item is handcrafted when it was generated by 3D printer, or carved with a CNC router, or cut out with a laser. While it is my opinion that using a band saw to create a piece of furniture is handcrafted, If I were using a CNC router, I do not think of the resulting carving on an apron as handcrafted. Certainly it is easy to see if something was lasered, but if something were cut with a waterjet I don't know if I would know the difference, and I don't think an individual would know if a chair slat was carved with a digital CNC router, except that multiple items would be exactly the same. Craftsman Scott Grove gives a local Ted Talkx about artists responsibilities to disclose if it is handcrafted or not... So where is your line in the sand?
