How to cut drywall

 

           If you are making a straight cut in drywall the simplest way is to use a drywall "T" as a straight edge and score the drywall about 1/8" cutting the paper surface with a utility knife.  Snap the board by setting on edge and pushing on the opposite side of the drywall sheet at the scored line.  Then cut the paper on that side with your utility knife.  If you are cutting a notch or other irregular shapes you could use a hand drywall saw.  Below is a circle cutter that can be used if you are installing can lights or ceiling fans

 

         Does this answers your question?
