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.

Or find a custom door or window shop that will make you Jamb extensions.

Installing them is as simple as nailing them in place.

What finish are you dealing with? Paint? Stain?
