I live in a 1950’s house. One of the previous owners has made a hack of some of the internal linings so I plan on ripping them out and building my own. It will be a fairly easy job in terms of fitting and installing as I know what I’m doing on that score i.e. levelling up using shims etc.

However I’m lacking some knowledge on the size of timber I should use. The width of the wall is 6”. Do I install a 6” piece of timber as a door lining and the door hinges fit directly on to the door lining or do I make the door lining oversize and another piece of planed timber say about an inch or so thick fits over the door lining and the door attaches on to this?

6 x 1-1/4in with housed joints in the head, and something like 1-1/2in x 1/2in (finished) or so softwood laths for the stops - most timber yards would sell you something similar as "door stops, 1/2 hour". All PAR, all finished sizes

What thickness were the ones you ripped out? They’ll have been 33mm or 45mm
Make sure you get the correct thickness as it’ll save a huge amount of packing or they’ll be too thick for opening.

I’ve never used anything thinner than 33mm for door standards and it’s always 45mm for external or fire doors.

you definately need at least 33mm you may get away with 25mm but planed timber will be around 20-21mm so 6x1" will actually be 20-21x143mm
wood from the sheds will actually be nearer 18-19mm

Is it option 1 or 2

You normally chop the hinge recesses directly into the door lining. I tend to install packers directly behind the hinges and at top and bottom (hinge side) and at 900 to 1000mm (i.e latch plate height), top, nbottom and half way between top and latch plate on the latch side. Maybe a bit OTT but stops the tendency for the legs to bow and supports the hinges fully.
