Our exclusive Do-It-Yourself shutter kits are simple to assemble and require no special skills. We provide you with all the parts, cut and machined, to make your own authentically pegged, mortise and tenon shutters in the exact size you need!

And it's fast!  A 5 to 6 foot tall, operable louver shutter will take you approximately 25 minutes to assembly.
  1. Insert the threaded eyelets into the pre-drilled holes. Remember, we don't use staples in your shutters!
  2. Attach the louvers to the tilt bar. (Steps 1 & 2 can even be done while watching the TV!)
  3. Put glue in the mortise-and-tenon joints and slip the parts together.
  4. Clamp & (Optional) drill for the pegs with the supplied template!
Keep in mind that for fixed louver and panel shutters assembly takes even less time as there are fewer parts to assemble and only steps 3 and 4 apply. And if you plan to do any finishing this can be done before assembly to save on time and clean up!
