Video: Sanding Drywall

The job of sanding drywall is no ones favorite thing to do but if you want to do your own drywalling, sanding is the final step and for sure the most important.

My video shows you the tools you need and the basic techniques to sanding drywall properly. The two things I cannot stress enough when sanding are, number one, use a light while sanding. This greatly increases the ability for you to see imperfections. Number two use a shop vac with a bag in it for cleanup.

Do not use your home vacuum as the fine dust will not be stopped by your basic house vacuum bag and will go straight to the motor and eventually cause it to over heat and burn out. I would also strongly recommend wearing a dust mask to protect your lungs.
