I'm a country girl at heart and I love the farm plans. I've had the plans for this header for 2-3 years now and finally got around to making it. I used tasmanian oak and jarrah and finished it with beeswax/mineral oil.
I used a mitre saw to make most of the angled cuts. I decided to make the wooden discs used on the comb myself which meant that they weren't all exactly the same size. I did manage to get the holes lined up pretty well by stack drilling them. I used axle pegs instead of dowels, which meant I had to move the position of the comb support slightly so that the comb would turn still with the wheels. I also broke one off the thin end pieces on the comb which had to be recut. The reclaimed jarrah is sometimes brittle and breaks along the grain. Super frustrating!
