Is there an actual definition for a woodsmith? Love the show, can do without the magazine.

The point I was making is that a woodsmith is a person that works with Dr. Wood-Smith.

The word you've entered isn't in the dictionary. (post #155746, reply #4 of 7)

Well that's what the Merriam-Webster online dictionary says anyway.   So there you have it, you can give it any definition you want!  Someone who makes things out of wood?

The proper spelling is "Woods-myth'     Noun.  A semi mythological  character who fabricates various items from arboreal materisls.    Often an extended  family member of the knotheads who is seldomly  seen by the immediate family unit.

I suppose "woodsmith" was intended to conjur up the versatility of the traditional blacksmith, but applied to woodworking. Kinda like "woodwright". For me, however, it always reminds me of the tag line of one of the contributors here - "Beat it to fit, paint it to match".  ;-)
