My second wall is much better than my first. Maybe if I did 10 or 20 more... But this is likely to be my only drywall ever.
Years and years ago I had a job that involved welding lacquer racks. I was really proud of my first one, until my superior took a hammer and broke it apart. It took a couple more hours until I made them that survived the hammer. So yeah, I agree it is similar.
I used the Larfarge for the 2nd coat and am glad I did. It spreads so much easier. Haven't done the third coat or sanded yet, but if it sands better that is gravy.
