Not sure what you mean by 'make from scratch' but I work with shops that start from sheet goods, often after having hand-picked veneers laid up on them. In those shops you are likely to see a big Felder, Martin or Altendorf sliding table saw and a couple chop saws.

To each his own. Everyone's shop is different. From shop size to the items we build. I work in a small garage and have built furniture pieces, built-ins, cabinets, etc. Since my shop is small, most everything is on wheels so I can increase my workspace for larger pieces when needed. Given that fact alone, large stationary machines don't fit well in my shop.

When I started we made our own molding and such. Now a days you simply call with a profile and they will make it for you, Its a little plug and play these days compared to the past.

We have a piece that was made in Germany in mid 1800's. It was made before plywood was available. Even the drawer bottoms are made of solid wood. It has some veneer, but it was definitely made from scratch with all hand tools and no assembly line.
A big piece of furniture might take two months to build, but that's probably one reason it's now over 150 years old. Well made.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?
