Trimming A Door To Length

Trimming A Door To Length
  When trimming doors to length, the cutter must have enough length to cut the thickness of the door. This will in most cases necessitate the use of a long reach cutter with 1/2¨ shank cutter and a heavy duty router. The trimming operation could be carried out using a clamped batten with the side of the router acting as the guide fence. Alternatively it could be done using a guide bush and a template.
1. Remove the door and mark the required length. Score it on both sides with a marking knife to prevent any feathering.
2. Measure the distance from the outside edge of the cutter to the straight edge of the base.
3. Clamp a batten guide this distance away from the marked line.
4. Cut in several passes at increased depths until the full width is reached.

  When trimming internal doors many passes are taken to prevent overloading the cutter and the router.
