Pocket door #1

This last weekend I finished installing the trim in the main room and cut down the Rebuilding Center door we bought for the bathroom. It was about 2 1/2″ too tall, and cutting it was a pain due to it being pretty non-square. I haven’t seen my carpenter’s square for a couple of years, which meant I had to wing it. It didn’t come out perfectly, but then I happily found that the pocket door hardware offered a lot of adjustments, which allowed me not to have to re-saw the door. Because so much of the trim goes on after the doors go in, I’m starting to face the realization that I’ll have to do the refinishing of the pocket doors sooner rather than later. Otherwise I’ll have to leave a lot of the trim until later.
