Thanks Willie this helps. I think I might have been short on the one I made for the patch but not by much. I was planning on using OSB as that seems to be the latest. Any issues with this or do you use something different?

Actually getting excited...might have some walls soon.

Hey forcedreno/Robyn..... I like your name better than butt board... should make mudding more enjoyable.

Good going

Best

MTN....should have seen the old mans face the first time I told him we needed to make butt boards. He cried shenanigans and I had to show him them on the net because he thought I was pulling his leg.

I just use cheap 1/2" CDX, but you have to be careful to put the strips on the concave side, and not the convex... if there is any cupping.

Regarding Fibafuse...not to be confused with Fibatape. I am using it and I like it. It goes on similar to paper tape but lays flatter and no worries about bubble later. I also prefilled the butt joints with hot mud after notching the edges at a 45. After spying on the pro forums prefilling is a standard practice for any gaps 1/4" or bigger. I figured it was easy to do and I would hate to skip it and have regrets later.

Pre fill is only if for some reason you have large gaps to fill.
I also vote for butt boards and the fibafuse
And to do the lids if you don't want to buy a lift look into renting. where I am it runs $25 a day. Don't know how big your project is but if you have everything ready you can a lot of lid in a day. It is well worth the the investment.
Yes you can use all purpose compound on all coats. The reason most use lightweight for final is it's easier to sand.
Oh and on the fibafuse there is a bit of a learning curve using it in the corners and not cutting it. After you use it a little you can figure it out.
Don't know about where you are but in some areas 5/8" is code for ceilings, you may want to check.
