Question About Door Casing


I recently removed some wood paneling from a bedroom and in the process I had to remove the door and window casing. I was hoping to build a new casing with corner blocks my only problem is that the door jambs stick out about 1/4 of an inch past the sheetrock. The casing that was there before was standard ranch casing that was a little thicker on one side. How can I get the corner blocks to lay flat if the jamb sticks out past the sheetrock?

Question About Door Casing


if the casing trim allows it, run them through a dado blade on the table saw to remove the 1/4 inch from the back of the blocks.
keep the full depth where it shows on the window jamb.
or glue a small block to the corner back of the corner block.
or add jamb extensions to the window to flush everything out. might be the easiest especially if it is paint grade.

The jamb extensions probably wont work because the door jamb already sticks out farther than the wall.

You may also have to rabbet 1/4-inch off the back side of the new casing material where it overlays the jambs.

Corner blocks tippicly are thicker then the casings.Blocks come in different sizes and thickness.Shop around find the size you need.On your doors you can also block the bottom of the door trim.It looks great.
