Here they are hanging.
Thanks Mike, I've been finding all kinds of new ways to use one.Nice rig! I don't think a lot of people realize the number of things that a router can do. Good work--MIKE--
Some of 'em are pretty ugly.It looks like the doors were painted. I like your trick to place a solid edge on the doors but why? If it gets paint anyway, wouldn't the finger joint stile be covered by paint?
Both jambs leaned back about 3/16" in the same direction, the width was a heavy 1/8" wider at the top and the head jamb was slightly out of level. I cheated the margins with the hinges and planed the tops to match the opening. By the time I got the all hardware set and cleaned up, I had 7 hours into the install. Mortising the hinges on the jambs was the killer, all hand work. The doors have dummy handles and ball catches, as well as a slide bolt in the stationary panel. I also had 5 hours into the shopwork. Not exactly a moneymaker.:laughing:Btw LF, how was the cased opening for putting doors into? I did one like that a few years ago. The framing was cross-legged a bit and one of the jambs was out of plumb. Pulled the casing back and shimmed the jamb, but the cross-leg left one door a little proud of the other at the bottom.

The latter is the case, some areas were completely unacceptable even with paint. I figured it was the right thing to do.Some of 'em are pretty ugly.
Pretty cool.The latter is the case, some areas were completely unacceptable even with paint. I figured it was the right thing to do.
I considered an edge-banding approach, but I had the poplar in the shop and you know I love to use the Azek scraps.:w00t:Pretty cool.
I've just glued a thin rip
on the strike side.
When the hinge side couldn't
be avoided I made a "V"
notch and filler.
This is cuter. :thumbsup:
Why do they DO that?!?!The opening was an existing cased opening with a 46 5/8" width.
