In remodeling a 30's vintage home we have a couple of surplus 32" doors. We are also putting in a small half bath and need a 24" door for it. The doors are unique panel doors that would not be easily matched. I was wondering, if I could cut one of the surplus doors down to 24"? The doors have a frame around the edge and have 4 panels with no center divider. I could rip 8" out of the center and glue it back together, but am unsure the joint could be made invisible?

Making it invisible is the easy part. More likely you wouldn't have a dorr anymore - just a pile of pieces. If you did get them all put back together, it would have no structural integrity because you had just cut the rails in half. a cabinet ar woodworking shop might be able to replicate it in a smaller size for you

Frankly.......................

Of course just the panels get cut in half right?..........You'll recut the tenon/mortise to rebuild the door as built?

The panel should glue-up without problem........

How wide are the edges? Could you take 4" off each side and still have a sturdy door?

I think they are about 4 1/2". Problem with trimming the side rails is the lock holes would have to be plugged/moved. I have about decided to just live with a bigger door. The room will be 3' x 6', so wall space is an issue, but by using a pedestal sink instead of vanity, I think it will work okay.
