Kudos to you for putting the header up first. I've had arguments with carpenters who insist on putting the legs on first. This causes a "trap" situation where both header miters have to fit the legs perfect or you end up short after making your adjustments. With the header on first you can adjust the miter on the leg if you need to and most of the time a small space at the floor is going to be of no consequence, or possibly being cut even shorter by the flooring installer.

Nice video! Good job keeping it simple. Sometimes with a corner that is fighting me to get tight miters, I'll barely lift the front edge of the casing as I make the cut on the saw. This provides a very subtle back bevel to your cut, and is sometimes just enough to allow your joint to be tighter. For DIY first timers, make sample corners out of scrap pieces first before you go cutting your final pieces. Not every corner is a true 90 so making samples and recording the angles on the backs will allow you to make the correct cut the first time on your good pieces. Also, cut 1/16 or more away from your pencil line if this is your first time doing this. Bring the piece up to the door and check for accuracy, you'd be amazed at how short you may come up by simply trusting your line the first time. It happens, and at least if you're too long, you can go back to the saw and nibble away a bit more until it's correct. Moldings aren't cheap, so do it right the first time. And the obvious, if you're planning on painting this, buy pre-primed paint grade molding, not the unfinished stuff. You'll save a lot of money.

My favorite part of these types of videos is how they bring out all the know-it-all, ultimate construction, tough guys saying how everything this guy did was wrong. The very guys that made me leave the trades. Nothing wrong at all with how this guy trimmed the door. If it looks good at the end, you did it right. Period.

OMG . . . I love how he teaches. I've laid engineered flooring, ceramic tile and wainscoting and I was terrified of trim and moulding. Until NOW! He has given me a huge boost of confidence. Now I need to find his video on crown moulding and baseboard trim!

3/16" reveal all the way around. First the header should be checked for level at the side jambs. Them just hold the casing with the spine against the header miter and mark thr long point.

Fantastic tutorial, I have learnt a couple of things here, I have only gotten into carpentry in the last couple of years, you have demystified some of the grey areas. Just one thing though. Isn't it about time Americans converted to metric.

I work with Metals, sometimes have to deal with things coming from all over the world and often times in metric. I can speak from experience, metric is so much easier to deal with. No 1/8 or 1/16. Helpers could pick things up easier. I can go on and on but I’ll leave it there.

This guy makes it look simple because his door jamb is in perfect alignment with the drywall. If you do this professionally you will only find a perfect situation once in every 50 doors at best. Watch another 10 videos on how to trim a door and you might have enough real world examples in order to do a nice job of trimming your door(s).

You have saved me a ton of future mistakes by teaching me how to use a test piece to check my miter before cutting the side trim! It’s such a simple hack that I’m embarrassed I didn’t think of it myself. Great instructional video that is easy to understand and follow with great details and tips regarding how to find the short points of the top trim, to dip the blade and move the board until you get to your mark before making a full cut, to keep your nails and inch away from the outside corners to prevent splitting, and to wipe away the glue before it dries. A+
