You measure the distance, accurately, and cut the wood.
Trick question?

Use a saw and a ruler. Need a better description of your question.

Your baseboard molding often looks like it is too thick to fit flush against the back side of the door casing because you are looking at the rounded edge of the casing. In actuality, if you cut the baseboard neatly and squarely, it will just fit in there without sticking past the front of the molding. A little caulking on your finger will help if the cut is not perfect.

HINT: It helps if you cut the baseboard just a tiny, tiny bit long....... you can always trim or sand it shorter, but you cannot add wood already sawn off.

Mom.:

Using a preacher to mark the baseboard directly for the cut automatically compensates for an out-of-plum plinth or casing. The preacher is a home-made jig, easy to build.
