Hi，Good morning！The lock of my bedroom is out work. This is the old lock ( imag1-3) . I removed it , filled the holes and gouge , but I can not find he same or alike moulding (image4). I think if I choose the same kind handle or lock ,everything will be fine . I am not vey satisfied with “rim night latch”, I prefer a lock with a handle . I think it maybe fit bedroom better. Then what can I do ?
Solved! See most helpful response
If you can't find the required moulding for image four, you'll need to use the closet-sized piece of timber to fill the gap and then use a 2-part bog to fill the rest. You can then sand the timber and bog into the same profile.
Once the door jamb has been filled, you can install a standard handle and lock mechanism similar to Ikonic Brushed Nickel Isabella Entrance Lever Set.
Please let me know if you have further questions or need assistance.
@MitchellMc . I think it is miracle! It is amazing ! But I know nothing about bog .What is bog ? Do I need a drop tub or sth or spray to spray(?) bog ? Would you mind give me more details of how fix the door jamb with bog? Thank you !
You'll need to fill the bulk of the void with timber and then use bog to form the moulded section. I've re-created something similar to what you have there without the complex moulding on the edge. Unfortunately, my filler will take some time to dry, so I can't show you sanding it back. To re-create the moulded edge, you'll need to bulk up the filler in that area. Once it is dry, you'll need to sand it into the same profile as the moulding. This would be considered a fairly complex D.I.Y. task, and you might wish to employ a tradesperson's services to finish the work for you.
Please let me know if you have questions.
@MitchellMc Your advise is always best . You have given me many help. I will do as what you say .Thank you so much and have a nice day !
@MitchellMc My plan is : fill the gouge with small timber and bog first, make a smooth face there . (Image1) Then two small timber stand closely following the moulding curve( image 2) . At last , fill all cracks with bog. Is it right ? Thank you again!
That sounds about correct, @vica. The bog is also hard enough to sand lines into it following the moulding. This would take some time to do with precise work and can be quite tricky. There is a timber bead that might suit that corner mould: Porta 11 x 9mm 2.4m Tasmanian Oak Rounded Glass Bead Moulding
@MitchellMc . Your words is so right! I want to take advantage of timber’s curve . If I can’t do very well, I just accept a rim night latch. It can covers this gouge. Thanks.
@MitchellMc I have a new idea of door handles . I find a kind of handle in my neighbor house (image 1) . I think it can covers part of the gouge of my door (image2) . It is bought in bunnings , but my neighbor forget its trademark. Maybe you can find it or sth. similar by special way, that will help me a lot!
