Re: flat box

8-12 for walls 10-14 on ceilings for me, Your need more than an inch of cover each side, The edges are so fine you easy sand through to edge of next box under, Then that line can show after paint. Sometimes.

Re: flat box

I 10 ich then i 12 inch rough sand that edge and center lightly then 14 inch and on ceilings it gets checked for flatness with a 16 inch trowel and coated wider whereever it needs it because flat ceilings will look lije garbage if not checked and this happens when the 14 inch coat is still wet so theres no flashing
