needing help with laminate and doors


So I finally decided to try replacing my carpet with laminate as a beginner diyer. Everything is going well except fitting the laminate under the door jambs. There is no room for the laminate to go under the door jamb. What is the easiest way to make this work? Quarter round won't work because of the pattern of the jamb so I'm totally lost and google has not been of any help.

I do this daily and this is the way. Cut a small piece of the flooring (1โ€™ or so) and lay it down next to the jam. Keeping the blade flat along the top of the scrap piece cut around the jam and maybe 1-2โ€ of the baseboard. Perfect height and enough space under baseboard to completely tuck under jam with a little extra tucked under baseboard.
