Looks good man!
I don't like that Easy Finish joint compound or having a seam at the edge of the door like that though.

No but joints. Faster finish. I don't haul and hang 12 footers by myself.
We're talking 40' of tape vs 28' Would have been 32' but wanted to avoid bowed stud in wall.

Didn't bring my rock stretcher yesterday. Power grab adhesive behind joint too.
I read specs on Easy Finish a few yeas ago. Thought it was identical to black top. National Gypsum. Made for Lowes and 3 less pounds in bucket. Seems to run and sand the same to me.

Re: Bam


Notice that huge stud bowed out of the wall. the mirror guys chopped the board away.
I normally fix mirrored walls but this one was an exception to the rule.

Haha. That's good.

I had tried the Easy Finish multiple times several years back and it seemed to shrink a lot. Maybe their formula is better now?

Re: Bam


Actually that was about 10 years ago was the first time I used it. I checked the specs and the ingredients were exactly the same.
When I run out I pick a bucket up at whichever place is closer Lowes or one of my two suppliers.

I'll put lines of setting compound on the walls where I'm going to be screwing the sheets, and basically screed it to get a plane surface. It's adapted from old plaster techniques for getting walls and corners straight. They'd use a long siding board, maybe 4-6' long, but shorter or longer for some things.
