What’s wrong with the existing door? It has patina and looks marvelous!

While the Veritas #4 would surely give you good results
and the Stanley #7 is suitable for almost any application
I would recommend the Fulton #47 1/2, a fearless plane,
unafraid of settled buildings and too-short lumber…

As ever, just do the best you can, but don’t take all day!

And I agree with Greg, what’s wrong with the door that’s already there?
It even has the Doggie Door built-in! :)

It is quite plain that any plane will be insufficient to make the corrections necessary. I believe you will need to rough it out with a model 7 chainsaw.

well, you first need to get a laser and re shoot the whole thing, then get a level….and use it, the only way you know how….and then….only as you can, make it happen…
