Figure out how much trim is actually over the drywall.  Set your TS height to that number.  Rip that material off of the back sided.  You're done.  Custom fit trim.

You're essentially just creating a wider rabbet around the outside.

Yes, I've done this..

I got this today from Whiteside for the mortises. That one mean looking bit! 

Well, after 10 weeks, we finally got the building permit and the slab forming will start tomorrow. Although the door won’t be installed for a couple of months, I got the itch to start back working on

I sure need no frost until about Christmas in order to get the tomatoes safely into canning and on blt’s. Got the first coat of ARS on one side of the door today. Also got the holes drilled for the ha

So make the rabbet on the backside of the casing pieces so that the part of the board that rest against the sheetrock is thinner than the part that touches the jamb edge? 

Ooops, didn’t mean to attach this pic again but can’t delete it.

Larry and Jamie, I like your ideas as well. As the space between the casing and the jamb is uneven up and down the wall, a cover strip like pictured below, instead of a filler strip might look good. The pic shows a piece that I will be using to hold the glass panes in place.

Kev's is the best idea but if the gap is uneven then I would do this.  Get the strip flush with the jamb and it will look like a nice cock bead detail.

Yes, exactly.

Problem resolved. The contractor brought in a new trim guy today and he said to “just hit the sheetrock where it it extends out to far, I do it all the time to compress it”. I gave him the casing pieces and he had them up and flush in 30 minutes. I bet he can’t fill a fire extinguisher though! 😂

That's great that you got it worked out.  It probably feels great to get it finished up.

On to the next project Mr. Retired.

Instead of proofs in the pudding pics, I will wait until I get the glass in to wrap this up. Our granddaughter is coming in from college tomorrow to have lunch with us so it will probably be a day two away, whatever that is. 

Chet, being retired, do you have trouble keeping up with what day it is or do you care! 😀

Yes, to a degree.  Sunday always kind of resets me.  During the week it is the time of day that I loose track of more then the day of the week.  I used to wear a watch all the time but since I retired I only wear it when we are traveling.

My watch wouldn't help, its still is one with an analog face.  Its a nice watch but analog non the less.

But even with out the right type of watch the first ten steps are easy.  If I am bare foot I can count up to the first twenty steps before I need electronic assistance.

The only time I wear a watch is when I'm working in refineries..  Most don't allow you to have your phone on you and the nature of my work requires me to know what time it is..  When I'm home in the shop, I never have a watch on and rarely carry my phone either.  For the most part, I don't care what time it is of what day of the week it is...lol

As no workers showed today, it gave me a chance to get the glass in. My part of the remodel is complete. The margin at the top of the door is the same as the hinge side, the shadow makes it look wider.

That looks absolutely superb my friend.  You need to give yourself a well deserved pat on the back.  That walnut just looks beautiful.

Thanks all for the compliments and guidance thru this project. I received some very good advice from y’all!

As an old friend on the old forum used to say, "sign and date it!"

Not sure where I would sign and date it? Maybe at the top of the side of the lock stile? Might be a little pretentious to sign it on one of the glass panels!😀
