Sunshine Clothesline Arms are made of Southern Yellow Pine, a wood species that is strong, flexible, light weight and last a long time. Like all wood products there is an occasional surface blemish. Some Arms need more tender loving care than others so we give them attention in the form of hand reworking. Refurbishing these small imperfections in our wooden Arms before using them is significant because this makes good use of a natural resource. These scars on the surface of the wood can be repaired therefore avoiding waste and keeping good material out of the landfill. This is another way G&G Clothesline is being Environmentally Sound with our manufacturing processes.
