| I'm planning on replacing and retrimming various doors here.
| Currently the trim is a basic 1 1/4 plain casing. I'd like to go with

| The problem is that a couple of the doors are pegged dead up against walls
| with no room for wider casing. I'd really rather not have two doors drive
| the casing choice for the entire house. I'd really really rather not (and
| won't, at least not at this point) move the door openings.
| Has anyone dealt with this before? I don't believe you can just rip the
| casing down to width as that will force an odd miter angle which will stick
| out terribly. Just try and use a narrower trim that roughly matches the
| profile of the wider one?
| thank you for comments
Actually, that is exactly what I did.
I ripped 1 piece of trim to exactly fit the width of the wall and cut a 45 degree joint.
I cut the other piece to go to the adjoining wall and then cut off only enough of the 45 on it to permit the vertical trim piece to properly join.
To my inexperienced eye, the result seems quite pleasing.
BTB I am using 2 1/2" oak trim.
