I’ve got a stack of 100+ year old interior maple doors that I plan to start putting in my house. When I salvaged them I foolishly left the jambs so now I need jambs. I think I have 2 options.
1. Mill up my own jambs from solid maple.
#2 is a bit pricey. #1 is the only way I can afford solid hardwood jambs, so if there is some big benefit to using solid, I will probably do that. I am leaning towards #3 for both time and $$.
Second part of my questioning is how should I hang them. Should I prehang the doors and then hang them like a prehung, or should I build the door frame in place and then hang the door?
I also have 2 exterior doors to do. Any recommendations for exterior jamb material?
