First Rule
Do NOT plane doors on the lock side especially French doors.
If a pair of doors are rubbing at the center, the correct way is to take down the active door (the door with the lockset) and plane down the side where the hinges (re-mortise hinges ) to open it up at the center.
Too many times handyman take the easy way plane down the lock set side(stile). This this ruins the 2 3/8 backset for your locks.
thanks
