Sourced in North America, Basswood is a hardwood that provides excellent stability and high density from closely spaced growth rings. For this reason, it is ideal for larger installations or high-traffic areas as it has additional strength over other hardwoods.
Otherwise known as Lime, Linden or Tilia wood, Basswood is lightweight and high quality with a consistent, smooth grain which makes it perfect to paint. The likelihood of the timber warping is low due to its engineered core, providing exceptional dimensional stability. Mortice and tenon joinery is used on all of our wooden shutters. Before going through the machine process, every shutter is extensively kiln dried.
