It is said that the mark of a good finish carpenter is the ability to hang a door so 'a nickel just fits between the door and jamb.' But even good carpenters often spend too much time and effort trimming a little here and a little there to make that nickel fit just right.

Getting a door to hang perfectly doesn't have to be such a time-consuming struggle, however. Installing and Hanging Doors offers proven production methods and custom techniques collected from other finish carpenters and from the author's own trial and error. Even if you've never hung a door before, Installing and Hanging Doors can make door hanging easy and enjoyable. And experienced carpenters will appreciate the depth of information provided in Installing and Hanging Doors, including:
  • choosing a door
  • hinges and hardware
  • installing jambs
  • installing prefit doors
  • hanging doors from scratch
  • essentials of weatherstripping
