This photo came from Billy Sanders of Chisholm Millwork. This is how the door arrived from the wood door manufacturer. #wordless
I hope this wasn’t a full job like this!!
Makes you wonder which one (if either) is the correct height from the finished surface.
Measure twice, cut once
Measure once, throw out the door and try again
I’m sure you’ve heard of a “drop plate” for door controls? This is the “drop prep” for door levers! Good grief – where was QC for this one?
I just came from a door where the mortise cylinder hole was off just enough to make it difficult to screw in.
Now I don’t feel so miffed.
Measure once drill twice, or was that measure twice drill once, he mumbled.
I did what the speck said, it made no sense but I did it anyway
Obviously an optical illusion!
Nope – from what I understand it’s a real prep!
Let me guess – hardware finish was selected as US3?
Who checked in the material in ?
Priceless …For most wood doors I just order them blank and prep on site .. just in case the existing frame has been modified
