Get a nice straight edge.........and it dosen't have to be expensive.We're talking drywall/plaster here,not checking jointer tables.
I have an ancient aluminum "style" off an old sliding galess door.Even has a nice handhold where the lock was.Looking down it's almost 7' length,it looks dang straight,haha.
Or use a nice 7' pce of plywood.This is your first drywall tool.Aluminum is really better because you can use them for finishing to.....like vaulted ceiling joints.The mud comes off better than plywood straight edges.
Now you get to go around your house and find every place thats "wavy",haha.Once you get a feel for it,you'll be amazed at what this simple tool does in the bigger scheme of things.Like,if/when you decide to put paneling up those stairs......USE THE STRAIGHTEDGE FIRST.getting ready to put a new vanity in?USE THE STRAIGH...well, you get the point.Use it everywhere......great for checking floors too.
Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.
