Woodworking Tools

A large collection of woodworking tools enhances the furniture collection and the majority of the tools were documented and donated by Captain W. J. Van der Merwe. His donation consists of more than five thousand objects used in all facets of woodworking, and more than a thousand wood and metal planes superbly illustrate the development and use of the woodworking plane.
