Overall a good kit

Gregory Posted January 7, 2014
Overall a good kit and materials for making custom plantation shutters but there are just a few missing details in the instructions:
1.) length to cut the slats relative to the opening between the stiles (clearance),
2.) dimensions of the rabbet on the slat corners for the hidden linkage nails
3.) Where to use the two different types of shutter pins spring/plain
