Basswood Traditional or Plantation Shutter Slats-16" Length
Save time and money by building your own Traditional or Plantation Shutters using our unfinished Basswood Shutter Slats! Available in three widths and two lengths; traditional comes in 1/4" thick x 1-1/4" wide x 16" length; plantation comes in 3/8" thick x 2-1/2" or 3-1/2" wide x 16" length (lengths are nominal). All stock comes ready to paint, stain, or clear coat. Ideal for fixed or movable traditional or plantation style shutters. Basswood is a stringy hardwood. To prevent your drill bit from getting bogged down when drilling through basswood, be sure to go slow enough for your drill bit to effectively clear wood chips.

You may wish to have shutters painted by a professional and then install.
You could, but I wouldn’t. Once the panel is assembled and operational, you only have one panel to hang and paint/stain; not 15+ pieces. I hope that helps; it is just my opinion.
Wish you luck
