I have been trying to put 45degree dadoes in the sides of a frame,so that I can mount slats for louvers on shutters. I need to rout 14 dadoes in each side,and they have to match perfectly on each side so louvers come out even on both sides. I am using rough sawn cedar that measures about 11/16ths. thickness. I have been just nailing them in from the sides but I'm afraid this will not give them enough strenth.

Anyone have any ideas????? :'(

A few weeks ago Bob and Rick had an episode where they built a small magazine table. It had angled dadoes to support two 45 degree shelves. Bob used a pattern that a guide bushing followed easily.
I would think that a dado setup on a table saw would be easy using the mitre to replicate each angle.

Visit the New Yankee Workshop to see if they cover making
those louvers. Norm made some shutters on one of his shows.

He also showed how to make a louvre shutter jig in one of the jigs shows a few years ago.

Part 2 of the jigs show give precise instructions for making the jig and using it.
