Building Plantation Shutters
Who can give me some "how to" advice on building my own plantation shutters for interior window treatment? I know I can buy a template to drill the holes in the stiles and the louvers so that everything lines up correctly. I can also buy a router bit that is specific for the purpose of making the louvers. The part that seems most difficult is routing the louvers. How important is the router table versus the router to make this project easy and accurate? I will have to buy both pieces and don't want to spend a bundle on the tools, so I want to buy just high enough to get a good result. I'd rather fabricate my own louvers than buy the relatively expensive premade louvers. Any advice about this whole project that anyone could offer would be appreciated. Thanks!
