Question

Mudding drywall with wood


Whats up guys hope all is well. I hope some of you can answer this question or steer me in the right direction. I have a couple of stairs coming down from my kitchen to my landing then leading to my basement. Along the side of the stairs from the kitchen to my landing is wood met up with drywall. I don't want to put any trim because it will stick out and i would perfer a flat serface could I mud that joint or would I run any kind of risks of whatever. Thanks and have a great day

You can mud it but I advise filling the crack with Durabond first. That way it is less likely to crack.

yes you can do whatever you want.

better would be to use a tear away bead,

better yet would be to laminate it with 1/4 inch

your way might work but theres no guaruntee how long it will last.

are you butting sheetrock to the skirt board?? id use some sort of bead for a better look.

I have used joint compound on wood before as a light skim to fill imperfections (at the painter's request). It will adhere to the wood, but I can't say for certain for how long. He apparently didn't think it was a problem....
