The French word « menuisier » comes from the verb « menuiser » whose Latin origin means to render small or slight. In fact, the carpenter, as opposed to the craftsman who made house frameworks, created relatively small works in wood. He worked the wood in planks and made furniture and other woodwork. Historically, it is known that man has always worked wood, using it not only in his daily life, but also for spiritual needs. To be noted in particular are the Egyptians, the Lebanese, the Chinese, the Japanese and, nearer to us, the Celts. Commerce of precious wood has always been a strategic aim, and it wasn’t until the 20th century that other materials, such as metal and plastic, took over from wood including the carpenter’s art. Today, a renewed interest in all that is natural and authentic explains the return to traditional crafts and woodwork.
