Κnock on wood.

Εισαγωγικές συμβουλές "To the Home Carpenter"    από τον John D. Adams στο επεξηγηματικό βιβλίο του "Carpentry for Beginners", έκδοση 1917, Νέα Υόρκη:

"If there is one DON'T that should be impressed more than any other on the mind of the amateur carpenter it is DON'T HURRY. Before touching a single piece of wood be sure you know exactly what is required and what you are going to do. Success in this sort of work lies in not starting until you have a clear and vivid mental picture of the thing you are going to make and not stopping until you have made it look exactly like that picture.

Mark out the necessary lines with a sharp pencil, and as you cut away the extra wood, forget all about the other pieces, and work on the one in hand just as though everything depended on IT. If you have an interest in what you are doing and will not hurry or become impatient, there can only be one result and that will be delightfully surprising."

Τι άλλο λέμε κι εμείς, τόσον καιρό...κι ας μην αρχίσαμε ακόμα το παιχνίδι των ξύλων.
