    Who is diagnosing the cause of the problem? It appears,...

    If you want wood trim there, you might need to scribe it to the ceiling. Iím not sure thatís the best look for a modern door, however. Why not bring the drywall down over the beam and terminate it...

    Joe, how do the thick veneers hold up? I would think that old wood will absorb and release moisture fairly easily, especially without a finish. Any issues with the glue bond over time?
