hitchhiker guide to the galaxy Axe question? Table question?

There is a story I heard a few years ago about, something along the lines of "He replaced the axe head and handle many times..." and ended with " ... is it the same axe?" I'm not sure if it was an axe or a table, it could of been table legs. I think this story came from Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. I've seen other story's simalar, but I haven't found the right one. Help please?

    There was something like that in a Terry Pratchett book. I don't know which one, though it might've been one of the Watch novels - the axe in question belonged to a dwarf, and was passed down from father to son.

    There might be something similar in Greek mythology, possibly involving the Argo (the ship that Jason captained).
