Elegant Governor Bahama Shutters for Added Charm and Function...

Beautifully hand crafted, Estate Millwork's Bahama Shutter collection will add elegance and functionality with loads of style to your home. Distinguished from other shutters by the fact that they are hinged at the top, rather than the sides, and usually have but one shutter per window, rather than two. Ideal for warm climates, Mediterranean and Caribbean style homes, Bahama shutters add shade to windows, porches and cabanas, as well as allowing for the shifting tropical breezes to pass to the interior of the house.

Solid Wood Construction

Our Bahama Shutters are made from the top grades of lumber, and are designed with extra structural details that allow them to be used in even the largest scale. We have made Bahama Shutters that are in excess of 14 feet wide, with as many as 7 sub-stiles. Our standard thickness is a stout 1 5/16, and because these shutters are constructed with top grade hardwoods and true deep pocket mortise and tenon joinery, they are much stronger than most other brands. They can be fitted with louver blades of any size and shape, and for some applications, our customers equip them with operating louvers that allow the louvers to be fully open or fully closed, or anything in between.

Expert Craftsmanship

In order to maximize the durability of our exterior Bahama shutters, they are hand assembled by master craftsman using parts that are made in our state of the art plant. Our workers are skilled at the old world art of mortise and tenon joinery, and have a knack for assembling these elegant masterpieces in wood that sometimes can have more than 500 parts. Each shutter is joined with precision joinery, doweled and machine sanded. Then, depending upon the application, it will be hand sanded, primed, painted or stained.

Customize until perfect...

All of our Bahama Shutters are built to order, and we can work from sketches, photographs, CAD files, or existing shutters. Our goal is to make the perfect shutter for each application, and perfection is a combination of proportion, dimension, style and craftsmanship. We can work with you to meet your exacting requirements, and because of the high degree of automation in our plant, we are able to produce completely custom, furniture grade millwork at very competitive prices, often at prices lower than manufacturers using inferior materials and joinery. Our website is a good starting point for your project, you can browse the styles of Bahama shutters that we offer, and get quick pricing and detailed drawings on line. You can order directly on line, or feel free to contact us with special needs or project requirements.


Solid Wood Mortise and Tenons

Premium deep pocket mortise and tenon joinery

True Tenons

Our premium quality shutters are carefully constructed using a time consuming and precise operation. Whereas other lower quality shutters are made using screws, nails, dowels or biscuit joints, each of our exterior wooden shutters has a minimum of 4 hardwood tenons. The end of each rail is painstakingly machined to have a 1/2" X 1 7/8" tenon by a custom built tenoning machine that Estate Millwork developed so that we could continue to provide the best quality joinery in the industry, at an attractive price. We gave up the cost, but not the quality.

Deep Pocket Mortises

Each stile is precision machined with a minimum of two deep pocket mortises, and these mortises perfectly fit the associated tenon. Again, Estate Millwork has used precision automation to preserve the quality of our products, while reducing the cost. We have software that connects our website directly to the machines in the plant, and when a customer places an order with us, all of the precision programs for machining the mortises into the stiles are sent to the plant for automatic execution. The mortise tenon joint, is the strongest joint in millwork, and adds tremendous strength, even without the use of glue.

Hardwood Dowels

Once the tenon and mortise have been machined, the parts are put together and a hole is drilled through the mortise and the tenon. A slightly oversized hardwood dowel is driven into the hole, locking the tenon into the mortise for the life of the shutter. Even though glue is not required, Estate Millwork takes the added step of gluing the tenon into the mortise, and gluing the hardwood dowel into the stile.

Hand Assembly

In our commitment to preserving the best of quality millwork traditions in each wood shutter, we have automated much of the drudgery of some of the operations, but assembling a shutter is still something very much in the realm of craftsmanship. After all the parts of each wooden shutter are manufactured, one of our skilled craftsmen fits them together in a specialized jig for dry fitting and final assembly. We do not use pneumatic or hydraulic clamps as they can damage or over-stress the wood. The craftsman uses his innate feel for the materials to set the appropriate clamping pressure prior to drilling and doweling. Each wooden shutter receives the individual attention of craftsmen all along the way, but the final assembly is where the shutter comes together the first time, ready for years of service on your home.


Shutter Options

Thickness, Width, Height

The "slab dimensions" are the size of the actual exterior shutter from top to bottom, left to right, and the thickness. Our default standard thickness is 1 5/16", but that can be varied from 7/8" to 2 1/4" to match existing exterior shutters. The length and height can be specified to the nearest 1/16" inch. Depending upon the style of the shutter, we have made widths up to 20 feet wide, and heights up 30 feet.

Shutter Frame Dimensions

Because all of our exterior wooden shutters are custom built from true rail and stile construction, we have the ability to replicate any component dimension on existing shutters, including rail height, placement, width, thickness, and stile width and thickness. Typically, the bottom rail of our custom shutters is 4. high, and all other rails are 2 1/2" inches. Stile widths are usually 2 1/2" but we have the ability to make them of virtually any width, including different widths for left and right stiles -- sometimes used for pairs of shutters.

Custom Sticking

Out standard products are S4S, or square shoulder sticking, but we have the capability to mould any feasible profile to the inner or outer frame fields. Common choices are ogee, cove and bead, bevel, cove etc. In addition to our stock sticking profiles, we can also custom grind tooling to achieve any desired profile to either match historical wood shutters, or to meet an architects or home owner.s specifications and preferences.

Shiplapping and Beading

For operable shutters, or for decoration, our wood shutters can be machined with a bead on one face of the inside edge of the shutter, and with a ship lap on the other, allowing the shutters to overlap by 3/8" when they are in the closed position - permitting a tighter fit. The left and right shutters are machined as pairs so that in the closed position, each face of the pair has a decorative bead visible.

Panel Profiles

Our raised panel shutters can be raised with our standard scoop profile, but we offer bevels, coves, ogeees and other profiles as well. Additionally, for the extremely discriminating home owner or architect we can create new tooling to match existing historical panel profiles, or to meet with a unique custom requirement.

Louver Styles

Our louvered shutters can be fitted with either our standard bullnose louvers in 3 sizes, or with a chevron or bevel profile as options. And because we are a custom shutter maker, we can also accommodate any special profiles that are specified by the customer.

Cut Outs

Raised Panel and Flat Panel Shutters can have a limitless variety of decorative cut outs machined into the center of the panels. Common shapes are moons, anchors, trees, hearts and we have a large number of stock cut outs which we offer, as well as the ability to match custom patterns that are provided by the customer

Finishes

Estate Millwork can ship our custom wooden shutters in natural, primed, painted or stained finishes. We can match national brand color numbers, pre-tint primers for light or dark finishes, and apply hand rubbed stain finished, even to the time consuming louvered shutters.


Is Spanish Cedar Truly a Cedar Species?

Spanish Cedar Wood Grain

Contrary to its misleading name, Spanish Cedar is not of Spanish origin nor is it a true cedar; rather, it belongs to the hardwood family. Derived from the Meliaceae family, Spanish Cedar shares similarities with Genuine Mahogany, boasting a rich color spectrum, exquisite grain patterns, and exceptional workability. Its typically straight grain makes it compatible with both manual and mechanized woodworking tools.

Renowned for its potent cedar aroma, Spanish Cedar is often referred to as Cigar-box Cedar. This natural fragrance not only adds to its allure but also serves as a natural insect repellent. With a high resin content, this wood exhibits remarkable resistance to weathering and decay, making it an ideal choice for outdoor applications. Moreover, its low density renders it lightweight, further enhancing its appeal as an excellent option for exterior projects of superior quality.

Scientifically known as Cedrela odorata, Spanish cedar stands out as a highly sought-after hardwood, prized for its exceptional blend of aesthetic appeal, longevity, and adaptability. From its enchanting array of hues, ranging from soft pinks to rich browns, to its captivating grain patterns, Spanish cedar exudes elegance and sophistication in any endeavor. Whether crafting fine furniture pieces, interior paneling, or constructing cigar humidors, Spanish cedar elevates the visual appeal of every project it graces.

One of its most notable attributes is its innate resistance to insects and decay, a quality that underscores its durability and longevity. This natural deterrent ensures that Spanish cedar remains pristine and functional, retaining its beauty for years to come. Embrace the unparalleled beauty, resilience, and versatility of Spanish cedar in your projects today. Explore our extensive collection and unleash the potential to transform your spaces into timeless showcases of natural grandeur. Opt for Spanish cedar and make a statement that endures through the ages, leaving an indelible mark of elegance and sophistication.

Handcrafted with Sustainably Harvested Lumber

At Estate Millwork, we employ a meticulous process to ensure the quality and sustainability of our lumber. Our commitment begins with the careful air drying of much of our lumber, followed by further refinement in low wattage dehumidification kilns to achieve optimal moisture levels.

Every single piece of wood we acquire undergoes thorough utilization in our production processes. Leveraging advanced automated saws and optimization software, we achieve an exceptional yield ratio of 94 percent. This means that nearly all of the wood we purchase is transformed into usable products. The small remainder, comprising mainly sawdust and chips, is utilized efficiently: either utilized as fuel to power our operations, or repurposed by providing bedding and contributing to composting for local cattle farmers.

Our dedication to minimizing waste extends to the sourcing of our materials. A significant portion of the lumber we use hails from Amish farmers within our county. These farmers adhere to traditional practices, utilizing horses for harvesting and operating vintage 1920s sawmills. Such methods not only contribute to the preservation of heritage techniques but also entail lower environmental impact compared to modern industrial approaches.

Furthermore, our commitment to sustainability is evident in the sourcing of our imported lumber. We exclusively procure lumber from plantation-grown sources, thereby ensuring that our operations do not contribute to deforestation or the depletion of natural forests. By prioritizing responsible sourcing and efficient utilization, Estate Millwork strives to uphold environmental stewardship while delivering exceptional craftsmanship.
