Exterior Shutters


Our shutters were starting to look bad and wifey found a photo of shutters on a little hotel in France and “commissioned” me to make them. I made a couple for her to ok and will reluctantly paint them and build 8 more. Used red cedar 4 that I picked up at a good price but…. a lot more labor involved so it may not have been such a great price. Two raised panels on the center and bottom portions of the shutter with moveable louvers in the top section. I’ll post a photo if and when she decides on the perfect color.

Will you also post how you made them?

We are thinking shutters too.

That is a good looking set of shutters and made from cedar as well .
Should last for a long time and as far as the painting goes just suck it up you know who will win .
Post some construction pics please.

Wow that’s a beautiful shutter.
