mudding/taping tapered drywall
Guys - done a few small drywall repairs in the past. Getting ready to do my first full room, which means dealing with tappered edges on both sides for the first time. I've always had at least one butt-end before.
I note the tappered edge runs about 3 inches or so on each side of the drywall, so put two sheets together, i guess around 6 inches. After i tape, do i simply run the knife up to "fill in" the tappered area - no need to run compound outside of the tappered area?
