The legendary carpenter Daedalus is credited with inventing the saw, axe, plumb-line, drill, and glue. Most famously, he built he Labyrinth at Knossos, on Crete, and constructed wooden wings to escape from the tyrant King Minos. He has a literal “falling out” with his rebellious son, Icarus. In his later years, Daedalus deals harshly with his next apprentice, his disrespectful nephew, Perdix. He is the epitome of the proud master craftsman who is conservative and cautious.
