Cutting 1.5' off bottom of solid wood door?
We're finishing our basement and have already purchased our pre-hung solid wood doors. Unfortunately what we didn't realize until after we received the doors is our framer made the closet door jamb too tall. This was made obvious once the drywall in the closet was in place and the drywall extends below the jamb. More of an aesthetic problem than anything, but I'm hoping to fix it.
I'm thinking of installing a 2x4 in the top of the door jamb, but since we already have our doors we'd need to then cut about 1.5" off the bottom of the closet doors to make them fit. Would this affect the integrity of the doors? If it matters these are 2 panel doors - solid wood with MDF for the panels.
