How to make a wooden hay rake video – Austria

Wooden hay rake
I’ve been making my own wooden hay rakes for a few years now but I’m still learning about the craft and intrested in examples from other regions. My friend Christiane brought me one from Austria and sent me the link to a video of Josef Frauenschuh making them in his workshop in Flachgrau. It’s an uncommon design, the tines (teeth) are not only angled back significantly but also arranged in a very slight ^ shape. He uses a few more machines than I do and a mix of lime for the stail (rake handle), beech for the head and ash tines to make a lovely product.
