Cracked wood frame door.


It looks like the hole was drilled off center, correct?? Measure the hole, find a hardwood dowel that fits tightly , glue in the dowel(TitebondII), wait for glue to set up, sand where needed, redrill hole in proper place.

Yes, you are correct. I'm a bit confused .You said a dowel (round wood)???

Yes, round wood, preferably a hardwood, available at home, hardware stores, and lumberyards. Your hole is probably 7/8" or 1". You might smooth out the hole to the next size and use that size dowel. And use a drill bit with a starting point when you redrill, it will help keep the bit running straight.

Cracked wood frame door.


Your pic is posted but I wish it had been taken from a little further back. First: Is that a picture of the door or the door jamb? It appears to be the door jamb and is drilled for a dead bolt to set into when locked. But it doesn't look wide enough for a door jamb. I think this will work for either one:
It appears that a section of wood, approximately 1/4"-3/8", has broken out where the 2x4 is now located, so I'm going on that theory. Bill's idea is good, if not for the supposed missing piece. Hmmm, the door is wood, and painted, so from experience: You have a couple of choices, 1)- Make a piece to fit the broken out area to glue back in, then do what Bill suggested. Or 2)-Cut out an area which would include the broken out area and the hole, cut a new piece of wood which will fit into this cut-out area snugly and glue back into place. After the glue is fully dried, sand all surfaces flush, re-drill your hole as needed, and paint as needed. Good Luck, David

You could just screw the door shut I would think (into door face into door jamb) but:
1. Screw holes to fix later (not such a big deal if painted)
2. No exit if a fire breaks out (could be a big deal).
