English translation:wood higo making machine
Explanation:
As they don't give you more info and in the absence of a few hyphens, it's hard to say whether "wood" refers to the higo or to the machine. I imagine the former. Either way it's not very clear English. I think they mean a machine that works with this particular type of bamboo, and that the cutter is a machine that cuts this bamboo. Presumably this is what they make the toothpicks from. I think higo is also the bamboo that "matchstick" blinds are made from.

Hope this helps!
