Stud wall


Well, I know I read this somewhere here on DIY, but I'll darned if I can find it...

How do you install studs to minimize visible wavyness in the wall? Do the "crowns" go in the same direction or opposite?

Hi Joe,

The crowns should all face the same direction...inward, towards the room space.

Or, get some straight studs! If they've got a bend to them, I use them for something else on the project.

Stud wall


These days if you leave studs lying around more than a day or two without putting them in the wall, they'll warp on you. They may have been straight when you bought them. If they have much of a bow, I'd take them back.
