    You don’t need a slight curve on the blade if you apply pressure to the
    outboard end of the knife, and there will be nearly zero sanding on the
    edges. I know because when I started as an apprentice back in 1975 you
    learn the technique because you sand all the journeyman’s work AND sand all
    your own work thus you eventually learn to run that blade TIGHT to the wall
    every single time so you don’t have to sand much.

    Dont know why yous folks just dont skim the walls,Far better finish and
    looks more proper than the cheap look of tapping+jointing.

    why did you not clean off your edges on the butt joint? gonna be hard to
    cover that now with your final coat, you are gonna have to make it really
    wide to kill the hump, plus you are making loads of work for yourself by
    not loading the knife enough, it should of only taking you one pass to
    cover that joint, but whatever floats your boat

    that thing looked crowned out before he even touched it, and you need to
    show people how to feather the edges, they will sand like crazy!!

    Clean mud is your friend, when it comes to butt joints a wide knife is your
    friend. Do your best to get the trash out of the mud and just make your
    joints as wide as you can. Good luck!

    Just fill the factory side with mud to make it even with the other side,
    then apply your tape, as you squeeze out the mud make sure you try to keep
    the tape even on both sides, this will make the second coat easier to apply.

    I don’t, after sanding apply a prime coat of paint, after it dries sand
    lightly, this will even out the look from drywall to joints.
