Basswood is one of the main types of wood used in interior plantation shutters. Basswood is common throughout the United States – primarily in the Central and Eastern parts of the United States including the Great Lakes region.
Advantages of Basswood for Plantation Shutters
Basswood is often used in plantation shutters for several reasons. First and foremost, is the fact that basswood is a hard wood and easily worked for various pieces of furniture and carvings. Another reason it is often used in the construction of plantation shutters is its longevity and ability to hold shape over time. Basswood also does not warp over time, is strong and lightweight and is excellent for construction for shutters due to its finishing properties. Lastly, basswood works very well with a variety of stains and finishes and allows for ultimate flexibility when choosing the finish that perfectly matches your home.
