Taping and Finishing Drywall Seams WTF??? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiE377vuzSY
'Home improvement and remodeling experts' like this give this game a bad name and this movie will waste 2.5 minutes of your life. Folks must watch this thinking they can start a new career the next morning. Please note: the 3 areas the paper tape is will blister after its been decorated.

Yeah that showed us lot. Why would they need us when it can be done themselves with plastic knives, plywood, and their home made handy, sandy, contraption thingumyjiggy things... and dried out blistered tapes.

However, I am available to repair it once the hacks have left. :rolleyes:

Is this a US type Changing Rooms makeover show? Loved your cheeky wee comment Tony, what a nice present left for the painters to sand down. :D Do I move these comments to the joke or DIY section?

Liked your cheeky poo comment thats on youtube I cant do anything about that.
I mean how do I catogorize this thread as we have to move things around all the time. Is it serious, comedy or DIY? Surely it cant stay in the pro contractor forum?

Reminds me of the time Gordon asked me how I could breathe doing drywall...

I asked, "What do you mean.?" He said, "We were going to sheetrock our garage but after we cut it, we couldn't breathe or see anything so we gave up."

I asked, "What did you cut it with?"

"A table saw."

I still laugh.

Reminds me when I once went on a site and seen a guy sanding a house with a basic electric hand sander.
Not sure if he's finished it yet, to be honest!
