comment How do I fix a door frame that my dog chewed?
+1 for replacing the trim. Trying to repair that much damage is a lost cause. The door frame itself may be fixable though if the trim is replaced.

comment How do I build a deck that is easy to take apart?
@Jay - no, never seen it done for real. I think this is a pretty unique use case though. Not often someone would have a reason to build a "portable deck".
