Bifold Doors

I kinda screwed up on my rough opening by 1/2 in I was wondering if a lauan door can be shaved around a 1/4 of and inch without damaging it.

Sure. A hollow-core door has about 1" of solid wood around the perimeter. This is necessary for mortising the hinges & screwing them in, as well as mortising the latch piece of the lockset & screwing it in.

If you need to take 1/2" or more off of the door, take an equal amount off of each edge.
