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.

Order section


As of 10.31.23 this book is fully ready for print.  It will be available on Amazon as a paperback within roughly 5-10 days.  If you want the Spiral Bound Version, you can pre-order it here.  Once I have 100 orders, I will place the order with a printing company (Amazon doesn't do spiral print on demand) and will get those out to you.  IF I get less than 50 orders in 30 days, I will place the order anyway.

These cost a lot to print in small batches, so I have to do it this way. I'm offering this due to the large number of requests for it so it should work out.  NOTE: You will end up on my Etsy store where I list all other eBooks.  This way I'll have a way to print out shipping labels as I receive your order.
