Door Jambs

Cut door jams too short while preparing to tile floor. What is best way to repair short of replacing.

Paint or stained, cut how short??? If painted, caulk hides a multitude of sins. If stained, more difficult. 1/4" -1/2" can be fixed with caulk if painted. If stained and I was being paid for the job, replace the jambs.

I can't think of a way to fix this is they're stained, either.

Make up special little blocks that look like they belong there. I don't think peoples' eyes will be drawn to that place.

You might start a home decoration fad.

Thanks guys (or I think guys)

The gaps are in the 1/8th in to 1/2 in variety. What I finally decided to do was to cut door jam material in different thicknesses then glue it in with caulk. Then I finished it with spakling, sanded, then painted. Looks pretty good (only had to do 8 doors, two of which were french doors).
