Pick from some of our most popular offerings of combinations shutters that mix louvered and paneld fields. This style is historically authentic, visually rich and can be achieved with either rasied panel or flat panel fields. You can modify the louvers to be operable as well.
With solid mortise and tenon shutter frames, solid louvers, and panels that are made with the same centuries old joiner techniqe of mortise and tenon, these combination shutters are built to last. The louvers are deep seated into the sold wooden stiles, and are protected from exterior weather conditions. The raised panels float in their frames and are built from the highest quality of lumber that we hand joint, and spline join for maximum stability.
Each of our hand crafted combination shutters is bench built by craftsman who in some cases have been working for generations in this trade. We harvest much of our own timber fromm our own forests, we operate our own kilns and roug mill, and machine all of our lumber in-house. Our exterior shutters can be ordered with factory priming and painting for a professional long lasting finish.
Despite its name, Spanish Cedar is not Spanish nor Cedar but a hardwood. Spanish Cedar comes from the Meliaceae family, and is similar to Genuine Mahogany in its beautiful coloration, attractive grain pattern, and great workability. The grain of Spanish Cedar is usually quite straight and works well with both hand and power tools.
Known for its distinctively strong cedar smell Spanish Cedar is also known as Cigar-box Cedar, the wood’s natural aroma repels insects, and the high resin count makes it very weather and rot resistant. Due to its low density, the lumber is quite lightweight, which makes this wood highly sought after as a high quality exterior grade species.
