Trim the door. Saw or plane up to the pencil marks, then sand the edges until they are smooth. Keep in mind that you're better off trimming too little rather than too much. 5. Check if the door fits. With shallow wedges underneath the door and someone else to help you hold it up, place the door in the frame and see if it fits properly. If it doesn't, you will need to trim again until the fit is perfect. 6. Place the hinges. Determine in which direction the door will open. The door should open in to the room and hinge placement should be such that the light switch is accessible on the side opposite the hinges.

When you place your wood before cutting, make sure the excess wood (the smaller piece) is free to fall once cut.
