When I made over our guest bedroom, I bought a new cozy rug for the space which I absolutely love. However, there was one small problem. I realized that the door kept getting snagged on it and wouldn’t glide over it since the rug is a little bit thick. I also noticed that the door was uneven on the bottom, so I needed to sand the bottom of it down a bit so that guests could easily open and close the door. I knew that my Dremel Multi-Max was the perfect tool for the job.
First, I removed the door from the hinges and we hauled it out to the garage so I could lay it flat to work on it.
I used the sanding attachment on my Dremel Multi-Max to sand down the bottom of the door so it would be even. It took quite a bit of sanding, but it got the job done.
Let me tell you a little bit about this tool. First of all, I love any tool that can serve multiple purposes, and this one is extremely versatile. It’s a 5 amp variable speed corded oscillating multi-tool, and it comes with multiple attachments and accessories, including a wood and metal flush cut blade; wood flush cut blade; wood and drywall blade; drywall jab saw; hook and loop pad; sanding sheets; and a storage bag.
It has a unique angled body for a more comfortable grip, which is especially helpful when flush cutting. The low vibration allows the metal head to produce cleaner and more precise results. It also has a compact head with a smaller front end which allows it to get into tight spaces.
It’s incredibly easy to swap out the attachments since it doesn’t require a wrench, which is a major plus. I’ve had tools in the past that were such a challenge to change the attachments, I always felt like I was wasting so much time trying to swap them out. This is quick and easy. Overall, it was easy to handle, easy to change attachments, and did the job I needed it to do.
Since I didn’t need to plane a ton off the bottom of the door, sanding sufficed. If you have a significant amount of the door that needs shaved off, then one of the cutting attachments or a planer might work best. Generally though, this tool works great.
We rehung the door and now it glides easily over the rug. Super easy fix!
