Jon, take a long straight edge, use clamps to secure the straight edge, then use your circular saw to cut em. The bed on my table saw isnt big enough or I would offer my services

I've got a similar question about this. Not to derail your post but I figure I would ask this here rather than post another similar thread.

I'm needing a new entry door into my detached garage and it's an oddball size that is only really used in mobile home doors. IIRC it's 30x70. Current door is a wood door that was obviously ripped with a saw and repositioned so it's not an exact fit and leaks by when it rains heavily.

Anyone know if you can rip a metal skinned exterior door with the right blade and hang once the hinges line up or if someone in town makes custom sized doors? a mobile home door, atleast the ones I've looked at, would be too thin. This is an inswing door that when closed the bottom gasket/sweep is sitting ontop of a concrete lip.

Steel doors have a foam core. cheapest way is to buy a solid wood slab, prime it good, especially the bottom before hanging. They make a pretty decent stick on weather stripping. All this should cost you less than $100 if ya do it your self. If ya need any pointers let me know

I called Hoods. They wanted $325 for a fiberglass shell foam core door.

BTW, dimensions correction, mine is 74"H x 36" W. Not sure why I was thinking it was smaller than that.

Jaster, recommendations on a slab door? All I seem to come across is slab interior hollow core.

Thanks

Check BMO across from Home depot on Davis. They have second hand doors $50 or less. By second hand I mean ones that didnt sell at the store. Have seen some nice ones up there!!! Just look it over and look from the top down to make sure its not bowed real bad or something.

BMO, Like he said.

I found a custom odd ball double French Door that I priced out at $1,100+ everywhere in the country. They had one that I picked up for $60.... I felt like I had found a winning lotto ticket, and could get out of there fast enough with it! It was almost funny, me trying to wipe that smile off my face.....
