Trim/Bead where drywall meets extension jamb

Hey Guys,

I'm hanging the drywall in my basement reno and I have some questions...

I have windows in the basement that required extension jambs to be flush with the finished drywall. I was thinking about not using any finish trim, but rather having the drywall meet the wood extension jamb with a clean 90 degree angle.

What's the best way to handle this transition? They are simply 4 outside corners, but seeing as one piece is wood and the other drywall, I'm a bit stumped??? Is there a specific type of bead for this application other than 90 outside corner? Does joint coumound adhear to wood?

Thoughts and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

You could use j-trim as shown here: http://www.usg.com/rc/data-submittal...ttal-J1572.pdf
Bring the trim to your wood jamb extension and it will trim out the rough edge of the sheetrock against the wood. Maybe it is what you are looking at, not sure.

If you didn't want to apply casing to your jambs why use wood jambs in the first place? You should have used drywall returns and cornerbead.
