Spot on.  Anything can be crafted. Anything.  It’s a catch-all term, which explains why stores often call themselves arts and craft stores, just to make sure they don’t miss anyone.

“Crafting” is too generic a term and can mean working on a million named or nameless tasks.  Knitting is a way more specific (and useful) term than “crafting”.  So is terrain-making.

And there’s the pride factor too.  “So … what’s your hobby (or what do you do for a living)?”  I would hope my would be that I make wargaming terrain, rather than just say I make “crafts” (which sounds more like a skittish, touchy non-answer).
