Interior Doors

Has anyone had problems with the interior doors of their Berkshire coming apart where they are pressed together? if you open the door and look at the end where the latch is it is separating at the top. If so how did you fix them.

Gorilla wood glue, a couple of C-clamps and a paint stirring stick.
Cut or break the stick in two.
Using great care pry the panel away from the frame, squeeze some Gorilla in the crack.

Put the two sticks on each side of the door, tighten one clamp on each side of the latch, let dry as recommended.

Forgot.
Clean off any glue squeezed out ASAP.

May want to allow for the fact the Gorilla glue expands a good bit as it dries.

Boowho??

Even regular wood glue will provide a bond stronger than the wood itself (and can be wiped from the any surfaces before it dries with a wet rag).
