Last spring, I purchased a pair of doors removed from a Craftsman House to repurpose as doors in a bookcase.

The first error was that I bought two left hand doors. Second error, I did notice the first until my wife pointed out that the wider bottom rail was at the top of the right hand door.

The recovery: convert one of the doors to right hand and move the hinge mortices for the right hand door.

I am an expert at recovering from errors!!! George
I think an expert at recovering from errors is what makes a craftsman. In this case, I wish that I had paid more attention when I purchase the doors. I would have tried for a larger discount. Then again I should have paid more attention when I first cut the mortices for the hinges.
