From Wine Staves to Wall Shutters
I knew what I was going to make the moment I saw these barrel staves.
When I saw these, a whole lot of ideas came to mind.
But I looked on Pinterest and found these really cool Shutters. They looked very easy to make!
So I got to work, I separated a few that I needed, for 2 Shutters, I need a total of 12 staves, so I cleaned them up, ( warm water and an old rag) let them dry, then I used Teak Oil on them to give them a nicer look. ( I love how they look) I like the Teak Oil because it doesn’t stay grease.
So for my Rustic Shutters, I needed a total of 8 long pieces, 4 of the short pieces and 2 for the center piece.
I then started measuring and cut them the length I needed.
The main long pieces are 36” the ones that go across are 12”
And the middle pieces are 26”
Once those were all cleaned, oiled, and measured, I began to assemble, I begin first, to drill my holes where the screws are going to go, helps so that the wood does not crack! Then I started placing and screwing down the pieces.
I just love how they came out!
