So we were pricing up exterior shutters for our NC farm house. I did some looking around the web but the prices were crazy, and the shutters on offer were not architecturally sympathetic.
Enter the Lowrider2…
After designing in VCarve Pro, It cut like a champ with a Whiteside 1/4" bit. 1-1/2 inch slats, 1-1/2 inch spacing. Awesome.
I ran 2 programs per stile- they are 75" in length. These are douglas fir, 1/10" incremental cut depth, 1/2" for the slats, 1" for the mortices for the rails. About 40 minutes per stile. The mortices are 40 degrees from horizontal, so would let more of the winter sun in if closed.
