    Amazing wood working story from WW II

    There are a lot of neat stories on this site but I thought this one was very appropiate for a wood working forum. http://www.merkki.com/violin.htm

    Dang gone Don, that just made chills run up and down my arms. Thanks for sharing that story, God is good and I am still just in my infant stages of learning to trust and listen and interpret what it is he is trying to tell me. What a grand story. Thanks again.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
