I made these shutters about 5 years ago. My wife wanted Plantation Shutters for the living room and dining room, so I told her I would make them.

There are a total of 5 shutters, 2 long and 3 short. Fabrication was not too hard, the painting was a big pain.

Nice job.
Did you set up a jig to do the slats and the staples?
If yes, blog would be neat to see.


-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

Did you use “Norm’s” plans for this?
