Shutters: Diamonds in Wood

Reviewed by:
Rosemary Thornton
Whether you need a replacement shutter for your 19th century chalet or a distinctive accent for your new home, this board and batten shutter might be a good choice.

Part of Kestrel's European line, the shutter is made in southeastern Pennsylvania. Its frames have deep pocket mortise-and-tenon joints. Louver blades are attached to the tilt bar with brass threaded screw eyes (as opposed to the more common practice of using staples). The diamond cut-outs allow light into your home when the shutters are closed.

Made with Spanish cedar and basswood, the shutters are available in thicknesses of 1-1/4" and 1-3/4".

For the more adventurous soul, this shutter is also offered as a do-it-yourself kit.
