Best answer


Use small wedges and a spirit level on top of the doorto position it perfectly square and level in the frame before marking anything that needs to be scribed or planed off. Mark the hinge positions on the bottom leaf of the stable door as around 50mm down from the top, and 150-200mm up from the bottom.
