Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
Old English cræft (West Saxon, Northumbrian), -creft (Kentish), originally "power, physical strength, might," from Proto-Germanic *krab-/*kraf- (cognates: Old Frisian kreft, Old High German chraft, German Kraft "strength, skill;" Old Norse kraptr "strength, virtue"). Sense expanded in Old English to include "skill, dexterity; art, science, talent" (via a notion of "mental power"), which led by late Old English to the meaning "trade, handicraft, calling," also "something built or made." The word still was used for "might, power" in Middle English.\n
\nUse for "small boat" is first recorded 1670s, probably from a phrase similar to vessels of small craft and referring either to the trade they did or the seamanship they required, or perhaps it preserves the word in its original sense of "power."
Old English cræftan "to exercise a craft, build," from the same source as craft (n.). Meaning "to make skilfully" is from early 15c., obsolete from 16c., but revived c.1950s, largely in U.S. advertising and commercial senses. Related: Crafted; crafting.
alt. (surname) n. (surname)
n. the skilled practice of a practical occupation; "he learned his trade as an apprentice" [syn: trade]
a vehicle designed for navigation in or on water or air or through outer space
people who perform a particular kind of skilled work; "he represented the craft of brewers"; "as they say in the trade" [syn: trade]
skill in an occupation or trade [syn: craftsmanship, workmanship]
shrewdness as demonstrated by being skilled in deception [syn: craftiness, cunning, foxiness, guile, slyness, wiliness]
v. make by hand and with much skill; "The artisan crafted a complicated tool"
A craft is a pastime or a profession that requires particular skills and knowledge of skilled work. In a historical sense, particularly as pertinent to the Middle Ages and earlier, the term is usually applied to people occupied in small-scale production of goods, or their maintenance, for example by tinkers. The traditional terms craftsman and craftswoman are nowadays often replaced by artisan and rarely by craftsperson ( craftspeople).
A craft is an occupation or trade requiring manual dexterity or artistic skill.

A craft is a vehicle or marine vessel used for transportation on water or land, or in air or outer space. Types of craft include aircraft, hovercraft, watercraft, sailcraft, and spacecraft. The term was first used to denote a small boat in English in the 1670s, as in "vessels of small craft". The word derives from the German Kraft, meaning "strength or skill", and its use for boats probably referred either to their trade, or seamanship, or "power". The word craft, when referring to vehicles, is its own plural, and does not take a trailing s; the word crafts refers to the family of decorative arts related to functional or utilitarian products, as in arts and crafts.
Craft is a Swedish black metal band, originally formed under the name "Nocta" in 1994. As Nocta they recorded an unreleased demo in 1997 and subsequently changed their name to "Craft". While musically inspired by early black metal acts such as Burzum and Darkthrone, as well as Heavy Metal bands such as Black Sabbath and Celtic Frost, their lyrics focus on misanthropy, destruction, hate, Anti-Cosmic Satanism and death resembling the older lyrics of melodic black/ death metal band Dissection. After drummer Daniel Halén was fired from the band in 2005, the remaining members briefly considered putting the band on indefinite hold, but decided to continue and address his replacement in the future. In 2008 Dirge Rep (Gehenna, ex-Gorgoroth, ex-Enslaved) joined the band on session basis to work on the drums for the coming album which is due for release August 2011.
