When you're trying to do your own drywall mudding and finishing or drywall repairs, one of the more frustrating aspects is trying to understand which tools and materials you need for the job.


I'm a 40 year drywall professional who now teaches drywall skills through my YouTube channel with 280000 subscribers and I'm the founder of The Drywall Academy at and I'm here to simplify it for you.

My book is intended to give you the essential information you need and to simplify your choices by giving you clickable links to my suggestions along with descriptions of what the tools are and what they are used for, which ones are gimmicks, terminology and more. 

I will also explain drywall materials and show you how you can get by with one or two of those choices. If you're tired of being frustrated, and wasting money on tools and materials you don't end up needing, this book is for you.

As of 10.31.23 this book is fully ready for print.  It is available on Amazon as a paperback now.  If you want the Spiral Bound Version, you can order it HERE.  

These cost a lot to print in small batches, so they are more expensive than the Paperbacks on Amazon.  I will sign these before sending them out.
