I recently built a set of custom wood plantation shutters for my woodshop. I used Rockler’s new shutter building system and it was great! The project was fairly straight forward and I’d say anyone with intermediate woodworking skills can handle it.
Rockler has online software that creates shop drawings from your field measurements. They sell the jigs and also louvers. You supply the wood for the frames and control arms.
I built a pair of shutters in about 6 hours from start to finish.
