With the hinges I bought (which fit the...

    Yesterday, my dog chewed one of my Ikea Akurum cabinet drawer fronts. Ikea does not sell them any more. I went to the local Ikea and asked about getting one. They had none left in stock. I asked about the 25 year warranty. They said if it failed they would "find" me one. So they'll find one for...

    I am in the early stages of designing a screen door for the back of my house. I have thought about using Cypress or Western Red Cedar but am wondering what other woodworkers have to say. I live in Arkansas and the door will end up painted. I want something that is durable, easy to work and rot...

    I am making some cabinets for a bar in my house. The doors will be approximately 16"w X 36"t. I was given a TON of walnut and would prefer to use that seeing it was free.

    I noticed yesterday that the door in one of my rooms has started scraping the floor. It is starting to make an arc on the floor in the area close to when the door is closed. I looked at the top of the door and it is lower on one side (the side of the knob, away from the hinge). I looked at the...

It appears the door on the right is to be fitted in a space that is square. The one on the left doesn't...
