Default Jig for making louvers

I have had great difficulty in setting up and getting on to this forum. now on a second name!!!
I am trying to build some small louvered teak doors (2) 12"x24". I do not have a PHD in woodworking or on forums is there a jig I should make, or should I just cut and pin the louvers to an inner frame. Thanks.

Hi Bob,

No, I don't have it, but I've been looking at it for quite some time. The video sure makes it look easy to get results. I have to come up with a project that needs it so I can justify buying it. ":^)

Norm from New Yankee Workshop, had 2 episodes where he made louvres.

I think episode 101? he made a jig to rout the stiles for a fixed louvre door.

I have the DVd which is "program #0101D. Try to get a copy of that DVD from the NYW shop.
