The Shutter Building System makes it easy for do-it-yourselfers to build high
quality, custom shutters in their home shop.
Medina, MN (PRWEB) January 10, 2012
Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced the Shutter Building System – a line of jigs, hardware, stock, and customized step-by-step plans to guide do-ityourselfers through the process of building window shutters. When compared to buying custom shutters from traditional retailers, homeowners with basic woodworking tools and skills can save 75% or more by building the shutters themselves.
"Shutters deliver a timeless look and add value to your home," said Steve Krohmer, Vice President of product development. "The Shutter Building System makes it easy for do-it-yourselfers to build high quality, custom shutters in their home shop."
The Rockler Shutter Building System produces shutters with louvers in three industry-standard sizes with configurations that either open and close or are fixed. The company provides a free shutter design application at http://www.rockler.com/shutter that provides a complete step-by-step plan for building each shutter. The system leverages specialized drilling jigs that allow users to precisely space and align louvers using a cordless drill. Basswood for the shutter frames and ready-to-cut basswood louvers can be purchased, as well as hardware to attach the louvers and control arm hardware to open and close the shutters.
The Rockler Shutter Jig Kit retails for $120 and is available in three louver widths – 1-1/4" (item
45983), 2-1/2" (item 44342) and 3-1/2" (item 47674). They are available at Rockler Woodworking
and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler's independent resellers, Rockler.com, or in the Rockler catalog. For store locations or a free catalog, please visit http://www.rockler.com or
