Shutters are just about the most beautiful accessory you can add to a home. I have had the privilege of building custom shutters for distinctive homes for over 18 years.

Custom made shutters usually retail between $350-$450 for each piece. If you like the elegance of shutters but feel you cannot afford them, these DIY shutters guides can get you there for a fraction of the price. The materials that go into making shutters are mostly wood. Usually you can build each piece for under $40.

    Here are answers to three of the most common questions I get:
  • You can build shutters from just about any kind of wood, except plywood. No need to go exotic unless you want to. You may even have some of the wood you will use sitting in your garage right now.
  • Yes, expensive specialized tools are used at the factory to build shutters, but the main reason for this is because they make hundreds of units per day. Building a few units for your home does not require this automated hardware. Basically, if you have access to a table saw, a hand drill or drill press and measuring tape you can make shutters using my step by step guide. I have taken out all the mystery.
  • You are not alone. Need assistance during your project? Send me a message. I would love to hear how your project is coming along and if necessary assist you.

One instruction guide can help you make shutters for your entire home. A tremendous cost savings. These are my simplified methods for making shutters, gained over a career of making them.
