Looking for opinions on grinding a bevel on the ends for butt joints. Makes a lot of dust but they actually sell a tool to do this. Iv done the backer board method already and the floating out method. But continue to wonder if grinding a bevel is a better way.

Haha I've thought about doing this , you'd think it woukd work , same way it does on recessed joints. . But the Grove or bevel you'd put the tape or mesh in would leave a small "gap" between tape and sheet rock , which would be prone to cracking. So youd be going over it with tape anyway , back to square one.
Go to YouTube and search for "that kilted guy butt joints". Do what he does.

i have thought about beveling the back but never tried it. seem like more time than just floating an extra 2 knives wide. i dont see anyone doing it. just float them out man. im not a fan of boxing them either. you just cant do it like a hand and knife can. all butts different. a box cant put on half inch thick mud and some call for it. lol

believe me all hangers have thought about the bevel at one time in their career.:)
