Carved wooden door in Lunéville

Carved wooden door in Lunéville

I saw this door in rue Gambetta in Lunéville a few months ago, but I didn't carry my camera. Last week I had it with me.

I was a bit puzzled by the tools carved on the door. At first I only noticed the set square and compasses and thought it could be a Freemason place. Then I realized there were also a ruler, a chisel, a sickle (not sure of this one). All these made me look for a job using them. I think the clue is : a cabinetmaker, for sure a person working with wood.

There is also one tool in the middle. I didn't recognize it, but I was lucky as I found it on a page about old tools. In French it is called "drille de perçage", a tool to drill. This is also the first time I see the word "drille" and I was surprised it is very similar to the English word "drill".

I don't know why there are leaves on the tools and even less which sort of leaves. Ivy ?

There is no sign on the house to say who has lived there, so we can only guess the job of the owner.
