OK guys I’m trusting in you. I just spent big bucks for solid oak to build a door jam (love the irregular sizes of these 1928 walls!) Now I’m panicing. Got the wood cut to fit, the dado, the mortice for the hinges, no problem. The wood is starting to bow slightly-been in the house couple of days now – and i want to get it nailed in quick. Something in the back of my head from all those articles is saying to finish BOTH sides of the jam before i install it to keep it from warping. Are these fumes getting to me or just install and finish once its all nailed in??
Please help, for some reason my wife thinks we need a bathroom door !!! Thanks
