Nice. We’ve used a quick jig like this. Usually a piece ply as kind of a spring board with a few triangles to hold the door when we router hinges or plane the edge on site.
I’m gonna make a few of these. They fold up more compact and look like they work great.I have been using a version of one of those for over. A little more crude but still using the same one.
I actually used it today when hanging 2 doors. Still works great.If the purpose is for the sample door not to be scratched, it failed the test as it was dragged when it was removed.
But the usefulness of putting a door in these fasteners was left to me, except if it is to fix it to planing. If that’s the case, you can make a bra without a hinge, with two sticks and two boards, the result is the same. If you have the tools to punch, you may as well make a Hand Press.I’ve discovered that being a packrat, saving every little scrap and random piece of hardware, pays off.
From time to time it leads to coming up with just the right parts to make something such as this. This is inspired!Love the creative design, love the functionality and the ingenuity, just one thing and that’s the storage. I need to work on doors from time to time and have ben faced the same problem.
What I do now is to just take a couple wood clamps and clamp a couple pieces of scrap 2×4 pieces on the bottom edge of the door where it meets the floor. Easy peezy.Glad I skipped to the end so I could use that time reading useless comments on a complex solution for a simple problem.
I especially like the idea of “spacers” so u can work on a different thicknesses of wood 1 inch off the floor. Thats brilliant!
That jig could be made as a single unit out of a couple of 2×4’s in under 5 minutes and be far stronger and more stable.Remember people leaning a door against a wall once and just dealing with the hassle, or hacking together a solution for those rare occassions when you need it, just does not cut it when doors are your profession.
