Tired of working with wood, a carpenter asks a fortune-teller to read his future. Much to the carpenter’s delight, the fortune-teller predicts a sunny life ahead, When the carpenter returns to ask for details, the fortune-teller has disappeared—and the carpenter discovers he has a talent for an exotic new occupation.
