Note that the type of wood you choose will determine the thickness of the shutters and also some other dimensions. See the product specifications for details.

Southern Yellow Pine Species: Pinus Palustris
Southern Yellow Pine Shutters Native to the Southeastern United States, Southern Yellow Pine is a soft and lightweight building material. Because pine is relatively inexpensive and easy to work with, it is now the most popular wood for exterior shutter manufacturing. Most pine wood shutters are purely for decorative purposes, but combined with our dowel and screw joinery construction these pine shutters are suitable for mounting on functional shutter hinges.
Red Grandis Species: Eucalyptus grandis
Red Grandis Shutters As a moderate hardwood, Red Grandis is an FSC-certified green and economical alternative to Mahogany. It is an excellent choice for indoor flooring, cabinetry, moldings, decking, and exterior siding and trim, including exterior shutters. Red Grandis varies in color from pink to white cream to light rose, but finishes well whether painted or stained. Red Grandis exterior shutters are an excellent addition to virtually any home.
Incense Cedar Species: Calocedrus
Cedar Shutters Incense Cedar contains high resins that make it resistant to termites and other wood boring insects, which makes it a popular choice among boat builders as well as for long term storage chests. With cedar's medium hardness, it is an excellent wood to work with. Cedar is also resistant to moisture, which makes it an ideal building material for wood exterior shutters.
Sapele Mahogany Species: Entandrophragma Cylindricum
Sapele Mahogany Shutters Sapele Mahogany is a true hardwood, which makes it difficult for moisture to penetrate even though it is still a very pliable wood that is excellent to work with. While Sapele Mahogany is primarily used in Europe and is one of the most sought after woods for fine furniture, doors, and windows, we have discovered it is also an exellent choice for building wooden exterior shutters. In fact, with it's reddish-brown wood grain that darkens and becomes more beautiful with age, it is almost a shame to paint these wood shutters.
