“Little outside the box” ...I used my old solid door that swung open to a pocket door. The door slides in flush so had to remove the door knob . Lucky for me I had an old wood baseball bat . Slid it in till snug , marked it , cut it , tapped it in place nice and snug , a little putty and paint and it came out great, and I still have a size 30 bat for future projects !
piece of wood from scrap pile cut to size glue in with carpenters wood glue,piece of dowel rod or old curtain rod,baseball bat(as Tommy suggested/good idea)
I'm thinking of doing that. But since I have to drill new holes on the opposite of the door for opening purposes, I plan to use the round piece I drilled out on the right side to fill the original hole on the left side. Then for the lock piece I'll just fill it with other pieces of wood. I don't have to worry about how it looks since it will be on the inside of the door facing the framing.
I have a door, circa 1910, has old Corrine Mortisse locking system with no keys , any ideas on filling in the gynormous door locking system hole to put a regular door knob in it's stead? This is an exterior door. Could an exterior wood putty fill in the area after I remove the Mortisse locks an then drill a new hole for new door knob? The replacement for this door lock system is over $800.00 so I could buy a new door, but the front door is so perfect in every way except I cant use it!!!
