It's laundry night so I had to stay home, I decided to tackle a problem with my bedroom door. It hasn't shut since I moved here almost 4 years ago, it hits on the top edge. I guess during the remodel all the doors were removed and put back in random places, but mine is the only one that didn't shut.
I've used a dull plane once or twice with minimal success, but I had never owned one. I bought this little Stanley block plane for $21 at Lowes, and it worked really well. I like the plane; it's a good tool. I'm probably going to collect these when I'm an old guy.
Great Lakes makes a good planing fluid.
Success! I removed about 1/16" and it clears just fine.
But of course there is some trouble...
Hinge side bottom:
Hinge side top:
Handle side bottom (not to be confused with the adjacent closet door):
And then here is the handle side top:
After all that, the door still will not latch because the jamb is so far out of plumb. Damn.
