Building a door buck (FHB #8, p.35) is a good idea if you find yourself dealing with a house full of door hanging from scratch, but for a quick setup, the answer is right in your toolbox. I use two bar clamps, one on each side of the door. Small blocks between the clamp and the door face will prevent marring.
