How would you *skim* this - studs flush against door jamb


I've been replacing the lower 48" of sheetrock of our basement that got flooded.

In doing so, I've been fixing other things like cracks and such.

What would you do to fix this. The pic below shows 3 wood studs that are flush with the door jamb. It was previously skim coated.....and there would always be a vertical crack against the metal cornerbead in which I removed off the drywall. The door jamb itself is only 3/4 so I can't really lay a 5/8" sheetrock against the wood.

Skim coat / no-coat 325 for the corner is not a good idea right ?
Alternatives ?

can you get 1/4" drywall in there?

Switch to a paper faced corner bead rather than nailing a metal strip. If you can't get the 1/4" to fit then use fiberglass tape to under the paper corner.

No coat is a paper bead....

the question is what substrate do I use onto of the wood.
1/4 will be too tight but that seems like the only option.
I was thinking maybo even bondo the wood, sand flush, put drywall liner paper and then paint .....

I think I'd cut 1/4" plywood to length & width, and install casing trim on the wall side.
