Corner Rosettes and Doorway Trim
I'm doing a couple of windows this afternoon for a woman who just loves those plinth blocks with flat, fluted casing. I personally think they........... well it doesn't matter what I think, does it?
As for your installation, I'll point out only three things:
You could have achieved a better look with either larger casing of smaller blocks (they come in all sizes)
You really should hold the casing back from the edge of the door jambs and headers the same distance. You seem to be much closer to the edge on top than you are of the side. 3/16 to a quarter inch is nice. On larger trim, I hold back as much as 3/8".
And the block appears to be cocked. Try straightening it, or lay the caulk to it.
Other than that, you installed it in the most commonly accepted manner.
One hint: Use only adhesive on the blocks if possible, no nails.
