How to mitre bullnose corner bead??


My house has all rounded corners and we are finishing basement - want to use the same bullnose corner bead.

How do you cope/mitre so that inside corners of the bead match up?? Ive used a lot of waste bead trying to figure this out.

I know that there are PRE MADE corners - but like crown I figured I can forgo the extra cost of the premade corners and figure it out.

If anyone knows how to do it - PLEASE HELP!

otherwise I'm driving back to the hardware to buy pre fab corners

If you are referring to Bullnose DRYWALL corner bead, just go and buy it. H.D. carries it. There are actually different radius sizes that you can get, at drywall supply places.
If that is what you want (drywall bullnose), then the option is to just purchase it.

You need to use the premade corners. Anything else would just seperate and crack.

I posted the same question a while back, and I found no magic solution. Back to the premade corner store I went. I was actually trying to miter a bullnose edge around a window with a kerf. The only premade corners I found had a "3rd leg" that I just cut off so it fit into the kerf.
