A lot depends on the nature of the "crack" is it really a ulll split, or simply checking from dryness? Is it a new door and frame or a very old one? Do you know what caused the crack? Is this painted work or stain grade? Is the door fully functional and the crack only cosmetic? or is it falling off the hinges or otherwise inoperable?

Any repair always requirtes determining the cause of the problem so as not to be only fixing the symptom instead of curing the disease

Excellence is its own reward!

A good friend of mine showed me a neat trick for fixing cracks in wood frame doors. If it saves you a few bucks and some intensive carpentry work, I'll be happy to share.

Just take some wood filler (the stuff that's like bondo for cars) sold at your local lumber supply store like **********, mix it up and fill the crack. The stuff dries rock hard and is solid enough to hold a screw. Just make sure you smooth it out nice and flush before it dries because it's very tough to sand down. Hope it helps.
