Read this in my youth, 1960s or 70s (probably) It is about a time when wood has become incredibly rare. It takes place off planet. A violin is taken to an old man for repair. He uses a very small piece of wood. I think there was something to the effect that he says with the repair it will never be the same as original.

Could it have been one of the stories in this collection?

I don't usually try to find short stories because I mostly know novels, but I think I've actually read this one, so I did some searching and found:


Wings of Song by Lloyd Biggle, Jr.
Thank you, that's it. Not as as I remember but then it's been a while.
