Shutters For the Cottage
I was so excited to find two pairs of antique shutters at the curb one morning. I practically ran home and zoomed back with my old Volvo to pick them up and drag them home. I asked a carpenter to make one good pair out of the two sets, and he discovered that they were infested with carpenter ants and beyond saving. He made me a new pair following the design of the originals. You can read his side of the shutter story on his blog, and see how they were made here: http://wallwoodworks.blogspot.com/
