Rockler Shutter System
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-it-yourselfers 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.
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 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 www.rockler.com or call 1-877-ROCKLER.
