    Yeah lol i had a spare piece of drywall out side and it got rained on and
    it made a perfect arch and it it fit’s perfectly above my shower so im

    Start nailing on one side and work across so you don’t bind the middle or
    rip the arch… I always make it wider so I can trim back the sides to a
    perfect fit then skim coat the whole arch with joint compound. MZ-HANDYMAN


    the best way of doing that its to wet the back side of the plasterboard and
    bend it on the arch. i’v done it like that and its much better and easier.

    What we have used in the past 30 years is…1/8″ peg board. With or without
    the holes. Small staple gun to attach to arch and WALAHHH.

    @atranos wanted to show different ways of drywalling an archway. See How to
    drywall a barrel vault – We show 1/4″ being used there.

    The white dude said. “I’m going to show you how to drywall an arch.” He got
    one hell of a tan from the intro to the drywalling portion of the video.

    I put the side walls first and cut with a router and l dont need cut from
    the back when i do the side walls,and then i just put some water on the
    piece what i use to the ceiling and the water makes the piece soft to put
    in circle so we dont need cut the piece from the back too

    @atranos you can do it that way but the pro’s do not we wet the back of
    1/2″ drywall and bend it when it drys it locks it into that shape

    why don’t you ever mark center lines of the studs on the sheet you’re
    working on? makes life a lot easier.

    watching a video on how to replace glass panes in the near future….lol

    One question Shannon, do you put the drywall screws in the same pattern in
    the ceiling as you would when hanging drywall on a wall? Excellent video my
