That is awesome Chris!

It's a shame more customers don't realize they can get a product like that. If they did perhaps we would see it more often.

Nice job. I'm sure you know most guys couldn't do that on a work bench. I hope you are at the top of the pay scale.

Re: A Little Drywall Art


Thanks alot you guys,

It did take a while to do,As I also did more in that room.
I didnt have any drawings or anything it kind of just came to me.
As all you tapers out there Know, Being a little artistic helps in our trade.
I will be posting more pics of this room today.
I have at least 50 hours or more on the framing and hang,tape.

Re: A Little Drywall Art


I gotta comment, just gotta! Credit is due where credit is due. Drywalller, I've been in construction about 30 years, seen alot of drywall, hangers and finishers, That has to be the BEST work I have ever seen. Extremely creative and pleasing to the eye too. You should send those pics to the material manufactuer, who knows they may want to use them.

My hat is off to ya!

This is the kind of stuff we need to see more often. It shows that there are craftsman performing their trade. The ability to break from tradition can be cutting edge. It is nice to see you have done this at your own home.
