Myron, that was a real good article you had in the current issue of Fine Homebuilding.

Question: Can you guesstimate for me what percentages of the total mud you use in a house gets applied in each of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd coats?

To embed the tape does not take much compound. The fill coat is where the compound is applied and smoothed out to conceal the tape and fill beveled edges. Of course the finish coat is just a thin coat. Maybe 25%, 50% AND 25%

Is that the July 27 issue? Could not tell from the table of contents.

FH is bimonthly, not weekly.

Myron, very good video. Do you have one showing you doing inside and outside corners?

The article was in the July issue. My one hour video can be purchased from my website. www.thatdrywallguy.com

I got the video, and it's pretty good. Too bad no DVD. I like Myron's dry sense of humor *insert rimshot*.

In a weak moment I went to Myron's website to buy the video. I figured "hey, I'm no expert at seam finishing and I could learn a lot".
After spending ten minutes looking for the video on the website and never finding it, I figured "not only do I stink at finishing drywall, I'm destined to stink forever".

The I thought, "ask Myron where on the website the video is".

Being a man of decisive action. I made this decision.

Myron..where's the video on the website?

Sincerely, Chad Fabry aka that mediocre drywall finishing guy.

Just did my part to put food on Myron's table. Thanks for the help finding the video.

Did the books section get removed? I can't seem to find it on your site Myron. I already have your book I might as well add the video to since I'm going to start taping my attic next weekend.

We were working on the website, but we have it going again so you can order it through there now.
