Default A nice story

Here's a nice story about a carpenter who cut some fingers off at work and made a prosthetic hand using a 3D printer. Now he's making hands for children born without them. I think I saw somewhere that the cost is only about $500 which I believe is pretty cheap when it comes to any prosthetic device.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I agree Bill. This was some of the best 12 minutes I ever spent watching something. In fact, after I posted it I checked the link to make sure it worked and wound up watching most of it all over again.
