I heard a guy talking about ripping some 1/4 paneling in 3/4" pieces, then attaching them to the outer edges of his 1x4 strips to make the butt turn inward. Never tried it as I don't find butt joints to be a big problem, but it might well work for what you are looking to do.I have often wondered if you could attach some sort of thin shims or raised edges on a 1X behind the joint to make a slight bevel at the joint.
Most use two stips of paper pulled from the rack (tabs) per stud,,, but doesn't that actually make two raised spots on either side of the butt????I have heard that if you put a couple of drywall shims on the studs next to the one the edges land on, then when screw them to the middle stud it recesses the joint. Then filll it with mud and it will be level to the rest of the wall.
Well thank ya now,,,, yeah she gets a bit frustrated at times, when I'm learning a new lick. Know how to tell if a banjo player is at the front door??? The knocking gets louder and faster !!!Well I have to say ,, Ya look pretty good sitting there pickin that banjo Captain,, but it looks like your girl is fixin to wack you with a skillet. I see Kirk is still the same, Kirk there is no way I'm going to fiddle around shimmin studs just to gain a recesse .
