I should have asked this before; not after ;)
How do you plane a door to get it to fit a door frame?
I have fitted a new door and planing the sides was easy enough, as with the door on its side, the edges were at a convenient height to work on. However, I had difficulty in keeping the door perpendicular. How do you do it?
When it came to the top and bottom, that was worse. You can't stand the door up, otherwise the bit you want to plane is over six feet high and you can't get to it easily. Lying the door on saw horses, I had the same problem as before: keeping the plane perpendicular to the door.
What should I have done?
BTW I bought an electric plane ;)
I am confused about manual ones: there seem to be so many different types. What are they all and what do you use them for?
Thanks in advance.
