Re: Making Companionway Doors

I built a set of hinged (lift off) doors years ago on our Viking 28, solid teak with louvres but not 'shutters' in the sense that they moved. It was a lot of work but looked great.. no pictures, unfortunately, long before digital

I sawed the louvre slats out of lumber, planed/sanded, notched the side pieces to accept them.. as far as I know they are still OK nearly 25 years on.
