    If you people really want to learn how to finish drywall YOUTUBE is not the
    place for it. Go on site and practice it for at least one year. It’s not as
    easy as it seems, it took me three years to learn the whole nine yards.

    It seems to me alot of proffesional tapers are very insecure, and when they
    see someone doing someone do somthing different, they assume it is no good.
    I am a general contractor, and if a taper showed up and looked like this
    guy, and was articulate, I would love to have him onsite. A lot tapers are
    really rough charachters in my neck of the woods. I have used a lot of
    different guys and this guy is good,and cares about what he does.

    @shkv40 I think you are going too thick with your mud which is causing your
    cracks. One solution, also, would be to use “hot mud” which is the powder
    mud that comes in different minute set times 20,45,90 etc.. get yourself
    some 45 minute & i think your cracks will stop. Hot mud is MUCH less likely
    to crack 😉

    butt seems first (the 4′ edge or non tapered)… manufacturers edge 2nd…
    inside corners last. Same order for applying coats..

    @MrSLPCamaroSS LOL at the bazuka. Calling him a beginner and busting out
    tools like a bazuka. What a waste of time, I can tape a whole house by hand
    with the super taper in the time it takes you to do a room with that over
    priced drywall tool. On a side note, unless its a small patch, dry taping
    is a waste of time, Lastly Curved trowels are useless. Get a real mans
    trowel and do it properly. jesus people.

    this guy is just a beginner, now us taper use a bazuka, oh and intead of a
    troll or what ever that piece of metal is called we a mud pan.

    Very very good. Thanks for the help. I just got this kind of tape instead
    of the mesh. I hear this is better. But I was a little lost .

    The compound sprayers are less productive and suck. I ran circles around
    professional drywall guys when they had three of them one running the
    sprayer and two smoothing it out and i flew by them doing it this way
    except I used a hawk instead of a curved trowel. So I think compound
    sprayers suck.

    I’ve been reading your posts with the other guy. Comical. I too would like
    to see your work since you have so much to say about what is wrong with the
    video. If you aren’t going to do that, maybe you should have a big mug of
    STFU. You’re coming across like a clown and fool. Quite while you are way
    behind because it’s not going to get any better judging by the comments
    I’ve read from both of you.

    I use a bazooka. I can tape out a 200+ sheet job (flats/butt joints) in a
    matter of hours. So worth the investment.

    3rd generation taper? I’m 24 and ive done this for 12 years. I’m sick of it
    but I could school this guy.
