whats the best way to trim 3/8 inch off sides of door and 1/4 inch off bottem? with out messing up the doors finish .im thinking power planer ,mabey hand planer ,or just a skillsaw with a clamped down fence .anybody work with these door lately?
Check the bottom of the door and see how much thickness the edges have---some of the cheap ones only have 1/2" or so ---removing that much may destroy the door---
If the door is drilled for a lock set--all trimming must be done from the hinge side or the lock set back will be wrong and the door will be ruined---Use a slab door and bore your lock holes after any trimming--
