No way will I spend $12.00 for a 4 5/16" x 81" fingerjointed door jamb. Especially if I need several. I'm thinking about using a $36.00 dollar sheet of 3/4" wood veneer plywood (ie. "sandply") and ripping it into 3.75" wide strips and using contact cement to attach .375" x .75" strips of pine or poplar to the plywood edges with just a hint left above the surface so I can sand them flush. Then I will run it thru the table saw to get the exact width if 4 5/16" with a slight bevel on the edges.

if your time isnt worth much, do it your way but standard jamb thickness is 4 9/16ths. so remeasure your wall thickness

SORRY- I meant to say 4 9/16". And the price is $12.80 - not $12.00 [prime painted]

PS I wonder if mortising the plywood will be tricky?

score your side jamb .75" down from top with utility knife so you dont get tearout when running through the table saw
