A NOTE FROM MARC SOMMERFELD:
Years ago, when I was building cabinets, I always had a few customers that wanted Plantation shutters on their windows to match their cabinetry. I didn't know how to make them, so I took the measurements and ordered them through the mail from a company out East. I didn't make much money on them because they were so expensive. Plus, I couldn't pass much mark-up on to my customer, and still treat them right, in my mind.
Awhile ago, I did some research on the internet. I found that custom made raised panel doors cost between $20-$30 per sq. ft. and (unfinished) custom made shutters will run between $40-$50 per sq. ft.
Fast forward to today ... I've decided now is the time to teach people how to make their own. With the resources that I have now - like my 3-piece Shutter set and DVD, you can build this formerly expensive job for a lot less AND you can control the quality of the work.
We are happy to offer to our customers our NEW 3 pc. Shutter Set (#03009) for $99.90 and the NEW Window Shutter Set Made Easy (DVD12) for $9.90. We truly hope you enjoy building this and saving the dollars.
