Forum Title: Scribe Door Or Re-fit Jamb
I'm hanging some interior double doors, (solid). They're vintage doors going into a vintage house (meaning out of square). The jamb is out of square, (about 1 over 48 at the top). The sides are little bit of out of plumb and the floor is little out of level. The casing is pretty basic and could probably withstand pulling it off. I think I'd have to scribe all four sides of the doors to make them fit in the existing opening. So the question is do, I cut the door, or fix the jamb? What's quicker? Normally I cut the door, especialy if it's a single door. But if I make a wrong cut on the doors, I'm left with trapezoid doors without a trapezoid frame to fit them in. Mistakes on jambs can be fixed...
