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.
