George Baker is a used car salesman who live in Chino Hills, California in a studio cottage overlooking a golf course overrun by carts and flying golf balls. George is a tinkerer and he touches everything he believe that he can repair. He did mention that the door looked a lot worse than it does in below in fig.1 and he had tried to push the door and jamb into place. All door moldings and door parts were purchase at the Home Depot.

This post shows the nine steps on how to replace a damaged wood jamb and casing. 

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the door hinge wood jamb is part of a French door entrance, the damaged was on the lock side of the door and and needed a complete replacement. Additionally the wood jamb was split from the top to the bottom.

Step 3: Fig.4 shows thick blade scraper holding the inside door molding away from the door jamb. A reciprocation saw was used to cut the corner of the door jamb and cut down vertically all the way down the wood stud. Cutting the nails as the saw made its way to the floor.
