Interesting Blog Post On Folding Drywall


I don’t usually put “How To” posts to our blog, but we recently remodeled a fireplace where use the technique of folding drywall. Thought some of you would enjoy the post, but I don’t want to retype everything here, so just go to the link below to check it out.

BTW, the “friend” mentioned in the post is Tom (tjbnwi). Thanks for the idea, Tom!

Re: Interesting Blog Post On Folding Drywall


That is an interesting post.... and the pictures are very impressive
with some Pl adhesive this would be actually pretty solid.

edit: just realized this is your site... I want to try this...

I thought this was about scoring the back, then breaking to fit in a closet ?

Done that when I screwed up the order of install. I do the back closet wall before I install the sides.

You sure you can afford her? She bills out higher than I do.

Looks nice and neat.
Was there a glue of some kind in the joints?

We considered it but didn’t put any in the joints. We basically put glue on the framing, folded the piece and slid it on. Screws in the face, a few staples in the top and bottom then shimmed it tight till the next morning. The 1-1/2" strips of walnut then went in and wedged them – they can’t go anywhere.

Re: Interesting Blog Post On Folding Drywall


Tom's way is far more cost effective, if you can say that about a Festool router.

Edit: Beautiful work guys!

This tool is far cooler though!

The saw was his first suggestion. I opted for a $70 router bit.
