How to fill this drywall gap?


How do I fill this gap? The left side of the picture, that drywall was done by the builder and it's finished. Behind it is a 1/2" OSB and behind the OSB is the 2x4 corner stud. The builder did not finish the wall flush upto the stud so when I finish the corner of the wall (right side of the picture) there is 1/2" gap. How do I fill this in to provide backing for a corner bead? I don't want to rip off the finished wall just to build it up to the corner stud. My first thought was to cut 1/2" OSB and glue it between the gap or maybe just fill it with joint compound, let it dry, then install the corner bead. Any suggestion?

Looks like you are going to need to put "nailers" on both sides. Just take another 2x4 and nail it to the existing wood.

You can also try using a stick of oversized corner bead. Check out:
