Happy 3rd Jan and all of that :)
Is there some sort of black art to making a doorframe to take 2 doors?
Spent ages building a frame that has 90 degree corners where it
should, upright verticals where it should, and a nice top plate to
take the tracks for these 2 bi-fold doors. Top plate and bottom plate
checked for vertical alignment (*nearly*
spot on, only a couple of mm
out), left and right checked with a straightedge and a spirit level
etc. They had to be packed a lot because of the state of the wall, but
Right hand door fits and works perfectly, left hand doesn't - it wants
to be nearly 2 inches further out at the top centre when it's
vertically correct (with spirit level)
top plate < misalignment occurs here

Me no understand. I can even put a straightedge along the tracks at
the top and they're even. If I put both doors flat on the floor (where
they were painted) they're not warped.
Is there a 'secret angle' I need to discover? Fsckin' B&Q wood......
