The Dominy Craftsmen of East Hampton

Winterthur Museum in Delaware has an online digital collection database. Click here to access it. In the tab “Tools” you’ll find many of the Dominy family woodworking tools illustrated in Charles Hummel’s “With Hammer in Hand: The Dominy Craftsmen of East Hampton, New York”, Charlottesville, 1968. Even if you own Hummel’s book, the new color images, with multiple views of objects, are a wonderful resource. There are also many tools in the collection not made or owned by the Dominey’s. You can search in the “Tool” tab. Try “Plane” or “Lathe”. Further information about the Dominy family can be found in the University of Wisconsin – Madison Digital Collection. Click here.
