Just completed making 15 sets of cedar shutters (a whole lot of different sizes) for a relative. These were made in a board and batten style. The vertical boards are held with pocket hole screws and the horizontals are held with short deck screws from the back. I chamfered the edges of the verticals where they meet to help highlight the line. A few coats of solid stain finished this up.

Enjoy and all comments are welcome!

Very nice shutters. Adds a lot to the character of the house. Now all he needs is a rake or leaf blower.
