Re: Making Companionway Doors

Louvres can be more easily made by dadoing the sides. cut a strip to tight fit the rabbit and cut into spacer bits. Rabit the ends of the plank to be slats and rip strips at same angle as spacer bits.Needs fou bits cut at 90 to start and finish filling the opening. Plan the number and size of bits and assemble with a dab of slow glue. Clamp mortice /tenons to finish. After 35 years, I still have x students come aboard and say"Wow, I helped make those."
