Why Basswood shutters?

Most people want wooden shutters because they look great on or in a house. The best kind of wood for interior wooden shutters is basswood. There are many reasons why basswood is the most popular and here are just a few:

1) Basswood is strong but it is also light 

2) Basswood has a grain that is uniform allowing a beautiful stain finish 

3) It is easy to glue and to finish 

4) Basswood trees are growing faster than they are being harvested 

5) Basswood does not warp

Item #5 is probably the most important reason why basswood is the overwhelming choice for wooden shutters. Basswood does not warp and that makes this kind of shutter great for being next to windows where they will be exposed to sun, cooler temperatures, and some moisture. Wooden shutters can be a problem if a wood is used that does not weather the conditions properly.
