Did you cut your door with a router and template?

I cut out the door from my wall template intending to use if for the door template, however I made it with rounded corners. I decided that bending aluminum trim around the tight radius of the door corners would be a challenge. Since the door template was already cut with rounded corners I couldn't use that. So instead, I squared up the corners in the door cut-out hole in the wall template and used that for my template to cut the doors. I used a 1/4" upcut bit and a guide bushing. The 1/4" gap should leave room for the trim.

I more or less used the technique from Scott's Workshop youtube channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnaVmH79XWMSWVyaRsXLxng

Thanks a bunch.

I’m building #4 In my brain right now. I’ve used commercial doors in the past so this will be a departure.
