Re: Door trimming conundrum

They are prefinished doors, and should not be touched, you can shorten them, but you cannot make them smaller,

Unless you go through all the hassle as woodsmith described.

the best thing is to make the doorpost smaller at both sides - or let them buy the correct size door in the first place
