    Don't know the price, but bear in mind that the oak is going to blunt your router cutters pretty quickly, so add this into your costing.

    I would charge £50 per door plus £15 for a cutter so £265

    i think your more likely to get 20 quid each on site

    the way i do it is to make template out of a sheet of mdf this fits between the stiles of the doorframe and rests on the floor
    this way i dont need to take the door off
    very quick
