THE BEST WOOD FOR WOODEN WINDOW SHUTTERS
Nantucket Shutter Shop Inc is a private company categorized under Window Shutters, Wood and located in Chatsworth, CA. It was established in 1949 and incorporated in California.
Nantucket Shutter Shop only uses the best wood; Basswood due to its beautiful grain, fantastic staining properties, and resistance to warping.
If you want your plantation shutters painted or stained, you can specify ANY paint color you want and we can also match paint colors for you. We also offer sandblasted, washed and glazed finishes and a variety of hardware is available.
Nantucket basswood plantation shutters are assembled using dowel joinery, ensuring solid construction. Louver tilting tension is achieved through an adjustable tensioning screw on each panel. Stiles are 1-1/16 inch thick. Rails are recessed in the traditional manner at 3/4 inch thick. Heavier duty hinges are utilized and are mortised into the shutter stiles. All hinges are premounted to the plantation shutter panels (not frame). Plantation shutters come with all necessary hardware including magnetic catches to keep your plantation shutters closed.
The painted or unfinished paint grade plantation shutters may be made from multiple pieces of wood. This provides for additional stability and resistance to warping. This is sometimes referred to as finger joinery. Stained shutters will not have finger joints unless the height necessitates it. This occurs when the stiles are around 72 inches long or longer. Even so, the "fingers" of the finger joint are NOT visible from the front of the shutters. They are only visible when looking at the stile from the side. The front maintains a smooth transition from one piece of wood to the next just like any other piece of fine furniture.
Basswood Plantation Shutters are available with either operable louvers (standard) or fixed louvers. The fixed louver option is popular when using plantation shutters for something other than window coverings. For example, if you are using them for closet doors, room dividers, wall decorations, cabinet doors, etc., you may want to consider doing fixed louvers. Louvers can be fixed in one of two manners:
1.You can order your Basswood plantation shutters with standard operable louvers. You can then adjust the louvers to any angle you desire and tighten the adjustable louver tension screw to fix them in position.
2.You can order your plantation shutters with fixed louvers. This is a no charge option. You specify at what angle you would like your louvers fixed and the factory builds them accordingly. The factory fixes them in position by joining the louvers to the stiles using two dowels in each end of each louver. When you do fixed louvers in this manner, the tilt bar is eliminated since there is no longer a need for it.
