Two of seven sets of white pine shutters I made for a home in Roseneath, Ontario. Each was made from rough 1 X 8 kiln dried pine. I had to cut 3” off each edge and discard the center piece (heartwood), plane the pieces to 1” thick, joint an edge, rip each piece to size, joint that edge glue 3 pcs together, and then plane to final thickness. The panels were sanded and battens glued to panels and then 3 coats of water based satin finish. The hardware came from Lee Valley Tools. The owner wanted a simple country style shutter. Originally he wanted to use a 1 X 10 pine board and cut it to size but the first panels cupped. Next I made a set with a top and bottom battens but those cupped as well. I got some rough kiln dried pine, ripped into three equal pieces and planed to 1”. I flipped the grains and glued them up but those cupped as well. So I had to go with the method above but they turned out great!!
