    Lookin’ good!
    Seems I always sand off about as much mud as I’ve put on ;)

    Although, I’ve become less particular as I’m getting older...and I see commercial establishments with worse taping jobs!

    I have gotten better at NOT slathering as bad as once did, get a pretty good finish with minimal sanding anymore but have worked on Five houses over the years teaching myself this.

    I respect those sheetrocker's both the hanging crews and the finishing crews. It takes a steady hand not just to mud and tape but do it fast enough and good enough to make a living at it.

    If I was depending on my sheetrock skill's to put food on the table I'd weigh 95 lbs..:D
