Tools: One of the most important tools is the Drywall T-Square. The drywall T-square is heat-treated aluminum construction and aircraft alloy steel rivets for strength and durability. This is the best tool because not only does it help you cut the exact piece of drywall it is strong enough hold for cutting 4-foot wide pieces. The information was obtained from The Home Depot Internet site.

Step 18: Once the wall is smooth then it's time to apply texture. Texture comes in two possible patterns; Knock Down or Orange peel. Look at your wall and if you have any flat areas then the wall is Knock-down. Fig.21 shows Orange peel texture. If the wall resemble an orange peel than its Orange peel texture.
Note: Check out my site on how to apply orange peel texture.
