Many woodworkers talk about the craft as if there are rifts between two camps of builders – the hand-tool people v. the power-tool people. The quick-and-easy joinery cabal v. the dovetail-everything-or-else crowd.

I don’t see things that way. Those perspectives are just different ways of doing the same thing: Making two pieces of wood stick together into something useful, beautiful or (if you’re lucky) both.

Instead, the biggest battle in woodworking today is much harder to see, though it touches each of us every time we turn on the fluorescents in our shops.
