space between column/stud


project in progress


because of the shape of the column i was unable to put the stud flush against it and get it plumb.




i was thinking i could use a piece of trim/moulding to cover this space. not really sure the best way to proceed.

any suggestions are appreciated greatly

as an aside, I would have never started this project without this website. although it has a taken me a while just to get to this point in the project, i have learned so much from the many posts and generous folks who always are willing to share their knowledge/expertise.

in the pic below, i added another piece to the top plate, to make the space more square. i still have to add the additional top pieces to the second and third front openings.

It’s looking beautiful.

That’s what they make trim for.

scribe to the column shape and you should be able to 'plumb' the stud.
add another one to it if you are worried about it losing too much meat.
caulk then add a trim piece if you need to.
