i want to replace my interior hollow core slab doors with hollow core 6 panel doors (not pre hung, doors only). i am wondering if there are tricks of the trade for aligning the cuts for the new hinges and handles, whether to cut the top or the bottom, how to avoid splintering when cutting and type of saw to use, etc.
also are there any websites that describe in detail what tools, jigs, etc are needed. is it usually easiest to paint after making the cuts and holes but before hanging? thanks
