Finishing drywall well takes skill, touch, and attention to detail. It looks easy, but it takes practice. Getting results you'll be proud of starts with well-hung rock and continues with using the right joint compounds and knives in the right order. Smart materials use and order of operations drastically minimize nightmarish sanding, too, and enable you to deliver a better finished product to your customer. You might even make more money than you thought.

Cut Short. Cut drywall 1/4 inch short when joining pieces to let rough edges fit and eliminate breaks from forcing pieces into place.

Check Ceilings and Walls. Apply rock on a flat, stable surface that'll hold fasteners. For new work, that's usually easy. Still, check walls and ceilings with a straightedge.
