Plantation Shutters #18: Drilled dowel holes, applied shellac, charred stiles & rails, wire brushed

07-24-2017 04:00 AM by Holbs | 2 comments »

I am using the Rocker 3/8” dowel jig to drill holes in the stiles & rails. I do not like it. Even though I clamped down the jig, it moves 1/32-1/16” during drill operation at times. My next plantation shutter window, I think update and enlarge my router mortise jig and use a plunge router to make holes/floating tenons. But I’m tired of delays so used it to drill over 100 holes today.I applied 1 coat of shellac, went to store for new propane bottle, used my anti-weed propane torch, and charred the siles & rails (no glue in the dowels as of yet so can take apart). Brushed with wire brush. Then, went to Subway for dinner :)More to come this week.
