Doors are not easy to work on. If nothing else, they are heavy – especially wooden exterior doors!
Below is a simple thing I made to hold the doors on its side so I can work on the hinges.
Painting a door is never easy either. No matter how long you let the paint dry, when you turn it over to paint the other side, the first side always gets marked up on the saw horses.
Here’s something I saw in a magazine. Put two screws in the top of the door and one in the bottom.
I attach rope to the two top screws so I can lift the door. When I lift the door from the top, it’s resting on the one bottom screw which allows me to turn the door.
I can paint both sides at one time
Here’s the inside.
And the outside.
