        "Beginner" and "Finish Carpentry" don't usually go together very well.

        If these are going to be operating doors, then you should hire this out to a pro. If the doors are to be used as a fixed wall, then you need to construct a simple box frame with a stop that will allow the doors to be inserted. Here too, the complexity of this can easily get past the beginner stage.

        Thanks Jaybee. These Doors Are Not Going To Be Functional Whatsoever. I Was ThinkIng That I Probably Need To Put them In A Box Frame. I Will Keep This Updated With My Progress. Thanks!
