Its light construction distinguishes it from metal rakes and makes it especially comfortable to use. Wood is a flexible material, its low weight allows larger working widths, the tines rake without getting stuck and bouncing, which makes this wooden rake ideal for rough terrain.

  • Splitting the prongs from hazel or mountain ash
  • Working the head and handle with hand planes
  • Shaping the prongs with a spokeshave and carving knife
  • Joining and smoothing the parts
