I have an old house built of brick, plaster walls and a corner out of plum, made of 1 x 6 wood. The item covers a waste pipe that runs from the second floor to the basement. My concern is the first floor corner (plaster wall to wood). How can I square the corner so I can then wallpaper it without ithe paper wrinkling? Thank for your help.

Is this not enough information? What else do you need to know? I would really appreciate your help. Thank you in advance.

Barbara,
If I have this right, You just have a pipe running between floors that is boxed in with 1 X 6 to cover it up? The easiest repair may be to just reset the wood plumb and square. Another solution may be to attach drywall to the wood and mud on "Trim Tex" or "Straight Flex" products that you can set square and plumb, and then backfill with joint compound. LOL Don.
