I recently finished a small batch of clothespins made from Cherry. I used an electrical ice cream maker to tumble the pieces and then finished them with a mix I made of beeswax, turpentine and boiled linseed oil. We use them in the kitchen to keep various food bags, like chips, closed.

You can see more details about these pins, as well as other types I make, at my website: www.heritageclothespins.com

Thank you Gary. These are much larger and made from better material than those you can purchase in the store as can be seen from the image:

If you are interested in making your own, you can get the plans and springs from Make Your Own Clothespins. If this is not a task you are interested in, then you can also get clothespins off my site
