From a young age, Rabbi Shmuel of Lubavitch, the Rebbe Maharash, would create wood carvings.
Over the years, among other things, mosaic tables and a tall candelabra of twelve branches.
One of his father’s Chassidim once approached the five-year-old Shmuel and said, “I have a good wood-carving knife. If you tell me where G-d is, I will give it to you.”
The young Shmuel, taking out his knife from his pocket, responded, “If you tell where G-d is not found, you win my knife.”
If that is the case, the Chossid said, “You win my knife.”
