Using AutoCAD I drew the basic size of the 78" x 30" or 24" door, w/ all of
the panels measured to with in a 1/16". I need to cut off up to 6". I am
gonna cut both tops and bottoms so that they look good. The 4 doors can be
seen while standing in the same position. It is easy to take an idea, like,
since the top door rail is half the size of the bottom, remove 2" from the
top, and 4" from the bottom, and refine the idea. Its just not as simple as
1", 2", 4", 6" off though, and there are a lot of parameters. I set all 4
doors side by side on my 19" triny and can see whats going on. I can fine
tune. Its easy for me. In seconds I could make them 3D, w/ wood grain. It
means that if what I come up with requires me to leave just 1/16" of the
interior plug, then I'm gonna have to live with that. Don't know if I'll be
cutting solid or winging it.
A few HD employees have told me they aren't allowed to cut doors. The mgr.
cut my 1/4", 1/2", and 3/4" 4x8 sheets of birch plywood for me. He made
them right. It wasn't a learning experience for him.
Spelling is another story. I probably use words others never do too.
to make along story short, real short, of the 12 side and top jambs from
3/4" mdf 4x8 sheet I had cut on the HD panel saw, I measured (.001" dial
caliper -$20 busybeetools.c - every thou is a good thou) and labeled every
one. The average of all errors of all ends of all pieces was .001". (not
two or 0)
