Your best bet is to cut 1" shims from a 2x6. Put two of them side by side to create a steady base for the skill saw as you cut the strips.

Now you will have a good shim for corner bead nailing. This is better than buying milled 1" casing ... and a lot cheaper!

Guess who got to cut 1 3/8" strips from a 2x6 today freehand with by skill saw? Coincidence but true. Didn't take pics but I did it using the technique I described (above) to create shims for a fireplace trim repair.

So, it CAN be done ... Just remember what they taught you in school: "Stay in the lines."

If you no longer have the rip fence for the saw. Drill a couple holes in the base of your saw and screw a peice of would to use as a fence, make sure it straight with the blade.
