Ladies* and Gentlemen, may we present…
Our bathroom door:
This is the door we added height and width to, so the next step was to route out the hinges in our living room workshop. This is way clean, btw:
Perfect. Now screw in the hinges:
Then route the door frame for those hinges:
Hinges Meet Door, Hinges Meet Frame:
There may be some finishing touches (paint, knob, lock, handle-side stop, blah) but who cares about all of that if your rebuilt door is swinging on awesome hinges?

The door to your bathroom is beautiful. You two are amazing.
Thank you! Remember we got those hinges when we went to Scranton with you and Uncle Wayne? We’re finally using them! 🙂
I saw great historic wooden doors on auction yesterday. Only problem was the price, far to expensive for me.
We’re lucky that most of the doors are original to the house and in good condition. Some of the small closet doors we made using mdf and a router. If you’re looking for old paneled wood doors, try looking at an architectural salvage place, flea market or craigslist instead of an antique shop. Good luck!
