Hanwell woman making, selling high-quality clothespins

“Christopher’s clothespins are made from locally sourced maple and ashand are bigger than normal pins, with larger, stainless steel springs from British Columbia. She planes the wood herself, squares it and runs it through a table saw to create the grooves. She made a quad router table to make multiple cuts at a time,uses a band saw to cut them up and a dryer to tumble them smooth.”

Good for you Sandra!
I saw some of your posts on the making of these clothes pins and it looks like you solved all your manufacturing issues!
More importantly, people like them!
