A church has asked me about installing stained wood casings around there interior doors. The building is about one year old and the jambs and existing casings all appear to be a single piece of metal. Is there a product or a company that offers millwork which can be installed over the metal casings? I was considering making it myself, but if someone is already doing in, it would save me some of my volunteer hours.

woodgu, I have not seen a company doing this.

There are companies that will create a molding profile for you, however.
