Plantation Shutters Downloadable Plan

Item #

The first criterion for this project was "They have to surpass the kind you can buy ready-made at the home-supply center." To do that, we specified better stock, requested a cleaner, trimmer look, designed a more positive means of opening the louvers than the center-mounted, staple-connected adjusting rod, and demanded construction procedures that didn't require unusual tools or complex jigs and fixtures. We improve on the basic stapled design and simplify the building process.

I am making the last set of shutters for the house. These were free at one time. Hummmm.

I am going to use the Marc Summerfeld router table and Triton router to make these shutters and also his video instructions. I just wanted a different method to be as well rounded in the construction as possible.

As part of my business I'd like to explore the making of solid wood invisibly adjustable and, possibly, motorized shutter systems.

How have people finished the shutters they have built. Paint or stain? If paint did you spray them? HVLP?
Kevin K on May 7, 2018
Is there a finished product picture to see if the shutters are an acceptable appearance?
Dskubis on Mar 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The plans and the jig system work extremely well. I built 18 individual shutters with the Rockler system. They look wonderful in our home. I have pictures but it doesn't look as though there's a way to add them to this reply. But I can say mine turned out just like those pictured on the website and on the plans and the box for the jig. I highly recommend this system.
Can I use this product to make exterior louvered shutters?
James P on Nov 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I don’t see why we won’t be able to. I have not tried it yet. I’ve had other projects that I’ve had to finish first. I will be making some exterior shutters for my new house next summer
