    OK I see, What I don’t like about that stuff is when you’re not using the whole box at once you get the small dry bits on the bag that fall into your mudd and then are dragging and messing up you mudding. It drives me nutz. Mixing the power with water really isn’t that hard. We have some very good mudders here Like OA and Carptr freak. Oh and Mixalot too. Did you looks at the you-tube videos??

    Yup – been looking at a lot of them. Learned a lot so far, but sometimes doing is the only way for it to click. Doing wrong really drives the point home

    I would prefer mixing myself too, but want to keep the number of things I can screw up to a minimum, so I can figure out where I went wrong and do better.

    So far, I have two coats on over the mesh tape (the self-adhesive one) and the tapered edges are mostly level with the rest of the wall. Using a 14 inch trowel, I am flat to the walls on either side of the mud. The inside corners are less good. I keep missing a little spot or two, and making the mistake of making one pass too many to try to fix it and having to pretty much start over.

    When everything looks done, hopefully after the 3rd coat, I will go back and roll on thinned mud and use a squeegee knife to smooth it all over. Youtube had lots of videos making that look good. Anyone do that technique? Supposed to be easier for rookies to do a skim than with hawk and trowel

    I use a pan and wide knife. But I’m not good at it.

    When you get it close enough, use FLAT paint… It hides a multitude of sins

    A bit of progress. Got the ceiling in and the screw holes filled

    Sammy helped, so it was much slower going, but a lot more fun.

    Did the corners last night, so sand and add more mud over two days. One side of each corner per day
    Have a skim coat to do, then Build out the closet/cabinet.

    Wife wants face frame and inset shaker doors. Ive only ever done frameless cabinets and never made my own doors (at least never made more complicated than slab doors). Looking forward to it 🙂 i like trying new things

    Always good to get the young ones involved.

    Eric, still don’t have the picture thing down pat. EH? takes a few seconds to figure out what’s going on when the picture is upside down. LOL Great work

    Thanks Dirty.

    If you’re using a 14″ knife why do your joints only look like they’re 6″ wide?

    I only use the 14 at the end. First pass (the back wakk was first only) is a 10 inch blade, and its a bit over 8 wide

    14 makes everything right at the end – or so I understand. Stay tuned for the final verdict

    Whenever I mud (quite a bit) my tape coat is with a 6″ knife, 2nd coat with a 10″, 3rd coat on beveled seams gets a 12″ and butt joints get hit with a 14″. Sometimes I need to go a 4th coat on beveled seams but not often – usually just when the hanging job left a little to be desired. I also sometimes break out the big 18″ knife for nasty butt joints.

    I go with bag mud for my first coats then watered down bucket mud with dawn for the final coat. Mixing the bag mud is pretty easy – get it to the consistency of the pre mixed stuff you are using and your good to go.

    Looks like you are doing a pretty good job. Just take your time – get a little practice in and it will be old hat to you.
