I am installing door trim in our house and one of the exterior doors is
about 1/4" or more short of coming flush with the interior wall, in some
places. The wall is wavy to boot. I have been shaving the sheetrock, on
the other doors and windows, with a sure form file but the amount that I
would need to file off for this door seems to be too much. I considered
ripping a couple of strips of wood to glue/screw to the sill to extend it to
be flush but am not sure if it will look okay. I was wondering if anyone
had any useful advice or suggestions.
Trim is often partially hollowed out on the back to accomodate such errors.
I leave about 3/8" on each side of the back and rout out the middle
inbetween part by about 3/16". Don't nall/screw too tight ot it will split.
Adding the strips as you thougt about works OK too.
