Very well designed and built
This set of jigs makes building moveable plantation shutters much easier. The jigs are well designed and solidly built. I would not attempt building these shutters without it.

With a couple improvements could be much better.
The jig is great for building your shutters. But it could be better. The engraving on the plexiglass should be on the bottom not the top. With the engraving on the top your get a parallax vision problem. It makes it harder to line up the marks on the plexiglass with the marks on the wood. If the engraving were on the bottom of the plexiglass it would make lining up the marks easy. Having indexing pins for drilling the control arms would also be an improvement. Be sure to check the depth setting for the shutter drill bit. As it came it was adjusted 1/32" to shallow. Which of course I did not notice until dry assembling the unit. I had to redrill 68 holes.

I'm planning on making 8 different fixed shutters. This Template should be a great money saver.
Robert H on May 15, 2017
Because I am unwilling to pay 600 or more dollars a pair for shutter to fit the six 5'x8' front windows in my house.

It says to add 3/8 of a inch to one stile for overlap. So does that mean both stiles need a 3/8 inch rabbit?
John Y on Jan 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Don't really know your project but my first thought is that if you try to add a coupla teenie bunnies you're gonna be overrun in no time. Seriously, Jonathan's plan of overlapping rabbets makes sense for a secure method of latching a pair of shutters (there are other ways), but I would suggest adjusting all horizontal dimensions to make sure the center of each pair of shutters will be centered when closed.
Is there adjustments to make louvers with no gaps?
Barry L on Apr 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I’m assuming you mean the fixed version. Dont think it can be done as the holes are fixed by the jig. I made some for a laundry area and stuffed 1/4 inch caulk backer rod in the gap. Doesn’t show and stays out!
Do you have shutters for outdoor use?
Nathaniel E on Jul 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I use treated lumber. 5/4 decking works quite well since the added thickness means I can get more parts from the same length of lumber. Full 1" stock makes good stiles and rails.
2-1/2'' Fixed Louver Shutter Jig--If this is a fixed louver jig, why does it guide drilled holes instead of routed slots like the 1-¼ louver jig?
Douglas C on Apr 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The fixed louver uses 2 pins per side instead 1 for the movable slats. The beveled slats rule out a routed slot..
Will this jig produce shutters that are vented or sealed? I would like to build some with 1/8" to 1/4" gap between slats!
Barry L on Oct 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is a gap between the fixed shutters and I think it would be in the 8th inch to quarter inch.
Will the shutter jig also work with 7/16 slates?
Mike M on Sep 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: no
I'm making fixed louvers for a door. The stile and rails are 1-3/8" thick. Doesn't seem to be any adjustment for thickness of material. Is there a solution?
