Shutter Restoration

This poor shutter was barely hanging on to Montezuma (built around 1790 in Norwood, VA). Luckily, Jack was able to delicately remove it (just kidding, it fell to pieces when touched). From the remnants, however, he was able to create a perfect replica of the original shutter. Below, is the process of marking, cutting, assembling, painting, and hanging the new shutter. Although this shutter is made with modern tools, it is an amazing example of the craftsmanship and attention to detail that goes into recreating the shutter built over a century ago.
