Next, I measure across the top
to get the head jamb length. I cut
all the pieces, then pre-assemble
them with screws into a single
unit. This increases accuracy and
enhances accurate installation.
Next, I tack the jamb unit with a
few nails. Before nailing it off, I
ensure everything is as flush as
can be with the wall; I straighten
it; I shim it; then I nail it.
I make plinth blocks from 5/4
stock. Here, they’re 9-1/2 inches
high, and I chamfered 3 edges
with my router. They get installed
flush to the inside edge of the
jamb legs, with no reveal.
