François was a Menuisier (furniture maker).
The menuisier, or joiner, was an artisan who built things by joining pieces of wood, particularly lighter and more ornamental work than that done by a carpenter. He was primarily responsible for the manufacture of small works, as opposed to large works. The joiner made small wooden works, furniture and other objects intended for domestic use (doors, tables, cabinets, etc.). His main tools were the plane, the galley, the grooving/plow plane, the handsaw and the mallet.
