Hanging a door

DAY CLASS BEGINNER AND INTERMEDIATE
In this practical class, you will learn how to hang a door. You will mark out for hinges, and create the mortises in the door and frame with a chisel and a router. Create the mortise for the latch, fit the door handle and hinges and finally hang the door.

The Great British Woodshop practical series classes are a good follow-on from our Skills Classes where you can take the knowledge you have learned and put it to practical use in a more targeted or focused way.

In this class you will hang a door:

  • It involves you marking out for the hinges in both the frame and the door
  • Creating the mortises in the door and frame with a chisel
  • Create the mortise for the latch
  • Fit the door handle
  • Fit the hinges
  • Hang the door to the frame

We pair up the students into groups of two so you have a buddy to help you lift and manoeuvre the door and we will also discuss techniques for performing these tasks on your own.

Maximum of 4 students.

General information for your visit.

Please wear clothes suitable for dusty work, sensible shoes and your own lunch. There is a local shop nearby if you wish to buy lunch or you can bring a packed lunch with you. Tea and coffee is provided throughout the day.

If you have some of your own tools and would like to learn how to use them properly, then you are welcome to bring them and use them on the course. We have a fully equipped workshop so there is no need to bring anything, but some students like to bring their own.
