Brand new Red Hook Millworks shutters, framing a couple of years old Red Hook Millworks shutters in the window across the street!
Slap it up into your window and call it a day.
We got a request to replace the louver assemblies in a couple of old original shutter panels..
Just glued up these bookmatched sapelle faux arch doors to replace the originals in a Bergen St. brownstone. More to come.
This is a prototype shutter for Louis Moore Bacon's Kendal Plantation rebuild project in Brunswick County, N.C.
18th century styling, executed in cypress, unfinished.
This is the upper tier of a set of shutters that replicate the style of the neighboring house's originals. Made of Honduran mahogany and finished with light shellac and wax.
Here are a few photos of the shutters and window surrounds we did for the Brooklyn Designer Show House project. The black walnut louvers tie in with the spiral staircase!
5 days from request to ready for delivery! 40.5" x 74" x 1.5"
There has been a spate of interest in shaker style shutter panels recently. In addition to costing less, shaker panels are a nice bridge between the predominate contemporary panel treatment and otherwise traditional shutter styling.
Early last year I was contacted by a prospective client for a quote on shutters for her bay windows. I didn't hear back from her again until late last year. Turns out that she had purchased lower-priced shutters from an online shutter factory, and had them shipped and installed, which apparently was a challenge, as they didn't quite fit the windows. Beyond the fit issues that had to be overcome, once she got to spend some time in front of the shutters, she came to the conclusion that something was lacking. She called me back, and I brought her a sample shutter, and explained all of the differences between what she had in her windows and the shutters that I make. She swallowed her pride, picked up her checkbook, and ordered shutters a second time for the same windows, less than 6 months after buying the first ones. Today, her "old" shutters were removed, her new RHM shutters were installed, and the client was left with a big, satisfied smile on her face.
The President St. replicated white pine pocket shutters came out exceptionally well. We expect they will be enjoyed well into the next century.
Our own Bailey Robinson whipped up this white oak pie safe/liquor cabinet for fun.
We are currently working on replicating missing shutters for a President St. renovation, using eastern white pine to match the originals. Fun with table saw raised panels! More to come as the job progresses..
Congratulations to our neighborhood 'pub', Other Half Brewing Co.. They've just won 10th best brewery in the world @ratebeer best awards!
Red Hook Millworks was fortunate to be tapped for the Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse project. We are in the process of fabricating shutters and pocket materials for it.. Just about to deliver these recess panels, which go into the backs of the shutter pockets and have the same frame dimensions that the shutters will have.
