The wooden shutters on our house needed re-varnishing every year. The wood had started to rot too, so I took some of the old floorboards from the skip where the house burned out last year, and some old steel channel perfiles I had rescued as offcuts, and made the first pair of new shutters. Cost me virtually nothing
Old ones:

New ones:

I even made the hinges
These are a LOT stronger, fit flush within the window recess, and will be very difficult to break open, having a strong steel frame that locks the two together.

Recycling FTW!!!

Nice job Nick. Hopefully you're putting some type of protection from the elements to allow these to last longer.

That really is a beautiful house, Nick...

a house like that by the beach in South Florida would fetch many many millions of dollars.

Looking great Nick. On a side note: You say you have to re varnish every year. Have you tried a Spar varnish or urethane? I know here in the states Helmsman make a Spar urethane. I use this on all my work that is exposed to the weather and it lasts for years before it needs to be redone.
