Return Policy

Our basswood lumber is ideal for building the frames on your custom-made plantation shutters. All stock is pre-planed to the appropriate 1-1/16'' thickness. For stiles, buy the 2-1/4'' wide stock. For rails, the stock width will vary depending on the height of your louvered panel. In many cases, you'll want to buy the 5'' stock for the rails, and rip it to the width you need. Use our Design Wizard to generate a cut list for your project, then buy lengths slightly longer than you need and trim to the exact length.

Features:

  • All of our basswood lumber is premium-grade stock (FAS Grade First and Seconds)
  • Surfaced smooth on both faces (S2S) so planing is not required
  • Guaranteed to be free of defects on at least one face and two edges
  • Kiln-dried to 7% to 8% moisture content
  • Planed to 1-1/6'' thick—perfect for shutter frames
  • May be used for numerous other projects as well

S4S - Surfaced Four Sides

  • Planed on top and bottom surfaces to be parallel.
  • Both edges are straight-line ripped perpendicular to top and bottom surfaces and parallel to each other.
  • This milling produces boards that are ready for your craftsmanship. All surfaces are parallel and square allowing ends to be cut square or at any angle you require. Boards with this milling can also easily be ripped to whatever width your project requires.
  • Great for all crafts, casework, furniture pieces, boxes, moldings...really any project!
