I hang doors plumb and level.

Re: How Do You Trim An Interior Door


So, I watch the trim carpies on my jobs do pre-assemble.

Measure, cut, glue, stack. Go back, hang and roll up cords after.

Main floors, mostly have been 8 ft doors.

Anyway, point is, the assemblies all fit. No problem getting an even reveal, or tight joints to the frame/wall.

IMO - ALL methods are good. Sticking to a method and practice seems to help.

Near the cut station I would always have a sheet of mdf on horses. I build, assemble, clamp and stack on the sheet of mdf. Do that till lunch, eat lunch and then hang it all.

Works well for me and I know no matter what all mites are staying closed.

The reason I hate split jambs is I never build anything but solid core doors. I do not trust casing to hold a 120 lbs door even if it's only for a minute. Not to mention nailing behind the stop isn't an option. Even if I didn't build a lot of the doors I hang, i wouldn't use split jambs.

I often set the heads then join the legs with a side nail and clamps with the bottom 6' unnailed for a while to set up
