Sample text

Also, the saw needs to be guided along the profile. This is a completed coping cut. The moulding at left is shown from the backside of the piece. Note how much the cut needs to be angled. This ensures that the coped edge fits snugly against the mating moulding. so it fits between the walls. A slightly long piece ensures that the moulding stays to the wall once positioned. Use your air-powered gun to drive 6d finish nails through the moulding and into the studs. Two nails per stud, spaced near the top and bottom, is perfect.

If you measure the existing opening, you’re not going to get the correct size door. Why? Because doors are roughed-in (the opening is constructed) about 2" – 21/2" larger than the actual door slab measurement. The additional opening is for the frame and the area required to correctly install the unit. If you measure an opening that is 32" and buy a door that is 2/8 you’re going to make a second trip to the lumberyard or home center. To get the correct door size move down 2" in width. A 32" opening requires a 2/6 door.

It’s important to have the correct rough opening. It makes the door installation much easier. You may have to close down the opening or widen the area to allow for a proper fit. Closing down the opening is simple. Depending on the amount you need to close, you can use a thin piece of plywood ripped to the stud width or any varying thickness of material needed to complete the task. I’ve added anywhere from a 1/4" piece of plywood up to another stud which is 11/2"thick. Just remember that any larger amount you close will need to have the drywall added and the wall surface finished like the rest of the wall.
