I was wondering,
Is there an actual definition for a woodsmith? Love the show, can do without the magazine.
I tried woodsmith and got:
Donald Wood-Smith, MD, FACS, FRCS is a Professor of Clinical Surgery at Columbia University
then I tried wordsmith and got "a person who works with words.
I went to Wikpedia also got the same thing. Wonder if you have to live in the mountains with only a draw knife/
The point I was making is that a woodsmith is a person that works with Dr. Wood-Smith.
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?

A Woodworkers mind should be the sharpest tool in the shop!
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". ;-)
