    FIRST OF ALL IF U DID THIS ON A UNION JOB THEY WOULD LAY U OFF IN A DAY
    .second YOUR NOT SUPPOSE TO TAPE AN OUTSIDE CORNER ONLY A METAL BEAD YOU
    ONLY TAPE INSIDE CORNERS AND WERE THE WHAL MEETS THE CELING ….AND IT
    SHOULD ONLY TAKE ONE STROKE TO APPLY THE COMPOUND ON THE WHOLE JOINT NOT
    100000 times your practically painting it on ….sorry to rain on your
    parade but if a NYC union apprentice tried to learn from this it’s not
    right they would be learning wrong

    If I’m putting up crown mouldings…do I need to tape the ceiling where the
    wall meets the ceiling?

    Thanks for taking the time to prepare an excellent video. We have done
    some drywall work but it has been several years. you have brought us up to
    speed. Great.

    Great job. I’m an electrician by trade and never really attempted drywall.
    Your video has been invaluable. Thanks…

    This was excellent and I especially liked the way that you put a place on
    the screen where we can click to take us to the next video in your series.
    Later videos would benefit from having a similar place to click on at the
    beginning to help find earlier videos that are connected. As to content, it
    would be nice to have close ups with changing camera and light angles to
    show any pockets or ridges to watch out for. Thanks for 2 great videos,
    Shannon and company.

    I don’t know what jackass would dislike this video. It was professional,
    informative and I really appreciate you taking the time to make it. You
    make it look so easy man! Thank you Shannon, I had to tear out my basement
    Sheetrock due to flooding and now I have the courage to attack it. THANK
    YOU MUCH Shannon! I hope those calls were for new business!! Lol

    Much of plaster work is up to the user, there are many different ways to
    coat but as a plasterer in this trade this guy knows his stuff! Keep up the
    good work buddy!

    When using a mesh tape product, use a setting compound, such as CGC setting
    compound 90 min dry. It helps prevent cracks with that product.

    So quick question why did you use a 3″ knife to put the mud and tape on
    your butt joint instead of a 6″ knife. Is it easy with the 3″ vs 6″

    Wow.. First time I see tape being used on an outer corner… Haven’t u guys
    heard of a corner bead?

    if i was going to put up new drywall in a room do you have to take off the
    window and door casings off or could i get away without taking them off
