Jagans,

I understand the importance of plumb and will definitely have my level handy for this job!

From what I see too often anymore you don't really need a level, square, plumb bob, duct/duck tape or guerrila glue. Just a big compressor and a "Nail it Gus!" attitude and fast nail gun.

Looking at pocket doors...


One of the kits is for my oldest son's room. I'm too cheap to buy the double closing kit so I'm modifying a single door kit to be a double door. We are going to use it on his closet..basically, make his closet door act like a door on a Star Trek star ship...

Part of my son's job is to figure out how we make the doors open together and via remote control. Should be pretty cool.
