While sunning myself (sunburning) myself on my summer holiday (vacation) I still find my mind pre occupied with all things woodworking.
I have for a while been considering building several sets of the plantation shutters as built by Norm at the NYW. I even sent off for the plan and DVD. Two things however bothered me, one, a means of profiling the slat louvers and two building the numerous jigs required to make the relevant component parts.
I stumbled across a seemingly foolproof jig and cutters sold by Rockler.com
So, my query, have any of you guys purchased or made use of the jigs and router bits…...or have you found another means of cutting the profiles for the slats.
I have a spindle moulder (shaper) so perhaps there are cutters available for that?
Any info or advice most welcome.
A photo of my sunburned foot, I didn’t think the sun at 3.30 in the afternoon would still have enough bite. I guess originating from Northern climes I’m not suited to the sun. Don’t feel too sorry for me, I’m by the pool and the sun has gone beyond the yard arm so a cold beer is called for.
