Yer they have, a shame too, I really felt like making someone cry today.

I think his problem is he should be using the 12 inch wide paper tape...

Re: How to tape and finish an inside corner


Bahahaha! omfg....
1- "apply a thick coat of compound to both walls"? haha.
2 - "using a small joint knife" 6"!?
3 - "Squeeze the excess mud from under the tape" He took so long to mud all the way to the bottom his top started to dry! Haha!
4 - "Apply a 2nd coat to both walls"? lol!
5 - Then!! "apply a third coat on wall at a time"! haha.
6- Let the mud dry and then "Do the other side"....wow....
What was that!? Three days for one angle!? Haha!

He's still better than this guy!! Hahaha!

Re: How to tape and finish an inside corner


I almost died laughing when I seen that video!
What a goof.

Fiber tape with regular joint compound.
Using fiber tape on inside 45's! Haha! Pre-sanding his screws!
And of course....Using only a sanding block for everything.
2buck!? Did you teach this guy!?
Isn't it sad that it has over 400 000 views!?!?

The bit I loved was after he'd layed the compound on like butter on a crust of bread , he says " Like I say if you want it smooth you can always sand it.... before you paint"

Re: How to tape and finish an inside corner


I know I shouldn't be spending my weekend watching youtube videos about drywall, but I was looking for videos about direct pressure taping knives and squeegee trowels and came across THIS I fear this new tool could put an end to professional drywall finishing in the near future. I might have to take up a new profession ...

That was hilarious.

I also liked at the end when he was showing his finished product.
