I bought a house that has quite a few pocket doors. The cheapie lock
gizmo doesn't work on any of them (thanks home inspector).
I usually take doors down and sand them before repainting. It's pretty
easy to do and they come out real nice. I paint them while they're
off, and replace the hinges (I don't like painted hinges).
It looks like the only way to take down a pocket door is to tear off
the molding. Is there a better way? If not, are there any tricks for
taking the molding off without damaging it?
