    Hi
    I need to fit a oak cottage style door into an angled frame under the stairs.
    How do I cut and shunt this?
    Or do I need to take them to a joinery shop?
    I've see you can buy them but they are hugely expensive and we need two maybe three.

    This is the style im thinking of.
    I have attached a photo of what I want to achieve.
    Currently away from home so can't get a photo atm.

    shoudnt be too hard to convert, but one problem is if there is enough of the stile left over after cutting the door to height/angle to make the new angled top rail.

    Hit the nail on the head here I think... The angled head is obviously longer than a standard horizontal head and therefore the original head will be too short to use. You may need to buy another door to use as a donor and use the vertical members as heads.
    As it is likely to be an oak veneer on a chipboard base you may also need to consider covering the inside of the door with 12mm ply and fixing the new made up door onto it to retain strength.

    Yes, a donor door might be the only option.
