At the dawn of the eighteenth century, Thomas Hache had developed a special sawing method for obtaining large sheets of magnifying glasses and red and green hues to the sycamore and ash, the secret is now lost.

Using magnifying glasses and roots as shimmering and iridescent as precious fabrics, Stone Axe, cabinetmaker of the Duke of Orleans, will create in the wake of the Louis XV style inlaid decorations whose taste and originality security remain unparalleled. His son Jean-François further enrich the sometimes adding virtuosity note in the forms.

The result of a century of production, the work known Axe is an impressive breadth and variety. The abundance of furniture that are falsely attributed to them is not less. This book was expected as a reference book.

Red Stone, training cabinetmaker, then has for over forty years directed its merchant activity to research and careful study of the Axe furniture. He is Vice President of Honour of the National Union of Antique. He wrote this book with her ​​daughter Françoise, art historian, who shares his knowledge for years.
