deconstruct an old door stile
just curious if it is possible to remove the lock stile from an old door and glue in a new one without damaging the adjoining rails/panels?
Its an original door to our 1894 home, but has been moved, cut crooked, drilled, and generally beat up...and i need to add about 1/2" to the lock stile for its original location.
I could patch it all and paint it, but i was interested in staining it, so seeing all of those patches would be less than ideal.
I assume construction in 1894 was glue up (no pins anywhere and no through-tenons) - can it be heated and disassembled or should i not even bother trying.
