I am trying to buy a louver shutter jig. I have only found one model available which is from Puritan CNC. Does anyone know of any others?

New Yankee Workshop sells a video on how to make one with their jig video and plans. Is not complicated to make. Just takes a little time.


Just remember what my father always said, " Half the people in this world are below average!", and everything in life will make a hellova lot more sense.

Hi Randy:

You're not going to find one worth spit that will suit your needs. Sit yourself down and start making sketches and plans. Every shutter that I've seen that has been worth making (and my wife's on a shutter kick at the moment) has been different. The manufactured versions in plastic and aluminum are all the same and never suit the application. You have two parts, the frame and the field(s.) The field, may be a panel, a louvre or just boards. Alternatively, take two, three or four (even five) boards and nail them onto two braces plus a diagonal if you really want to get fancy.

Here's the combination: make a more weather resistant version of your kitchen cupboard doors. Instead of the raised panel fields (oops you can use raised panels for your shutters) use louvers, panels, boards or something to fill in the middle. Once the design is settled, make a jig that supports the router, provides a template for it to follow. Experimentation will provide all of the answers.





The louvered section is made using a jig and template and cut using a brass template guide and suitably sized bit. Now, are your louvers going to open and close or will they be static.
