Yes, you don't have to use just hand tools to be a woodworker. For a long time, I didn't. Then people started giving me old stuff and I refurbished them into usable condition. I came across James Krenov's writings and started using those tools. He used both kinds of tools, but you could see his preference and his reason for using them. As my skill grew with hand tools, so did the quality of work and the enjoyment of woodworking. Now, I'll grab a hand saw as often as an electric saw. Right now, I'm building a stand for my bench top drill press and everything has been done with hand tools. Kinda ironic, building a stand for an electric tool with hand tools.
I've gone out to find myself. If I return before I get back, have me wait for me.
