D'Elia Antique Tool Museum

1,500 woodworking planes, spanning 300 years, plus a few other odds and ends. We thought it would be a goof. Turns out Mr. D'Elia is the guide. He is knowledgeable and passionate about wood planes and makes it into a worthwhile experience. If he likes you, he will give you a copy of the book he wrote about -- what else -- wood planes.
