custom casing for entry way

Hi everyone.

Great forum! Lots of great info and hope to learn a lot.

I've run into a small problem. I like to install casing around an open entry way however I have an issue. The jam that I bought is 6" 5/8, but the entry way is minimum 6" 14/16 and max of 6" 15/16.
It's a finished entry way and I know the corners were made with the metal corners.

I've went to several hardware stores and they don't carry any jams larger than the one I have 6" 5/8.

I'm wondering what I should do with the least amount of effort. I'm hoping someone with experience could provide some advice.

if painting and doing mdf, just cut some stock down as described by joe above. paint with a sandable primer. prime and sand the fuzzies off the edges. I find it easier to do this before they are installed. prime everything again once installed, then paint. many paint one coat first, install, then put on the last coat.
