Can anyone tell me where I can find instructions for getting that nice even smooth round corner on drywall like they are now doing in the Seattle area? Or if it's easy and just takes a special tool or two, tell me how and what. Thanks for the help.

I just came across this thread and wanted to add that if you're looking for a larger radius, such as 9" or greater, you'll need to use bending plywood over "ribs" that create the corner and span the distance between the two 90 degree walls. Pick up the "Framing Floors, Walls, and Ceilings" edition of the "For Pros By Pros" series for a better description.

I'm not talking about trim molding, if that's what you mean. I was referring to a curved corner, a change in the framing of the wall intersection in order to facilitate a large-radius turn that spans the 90 degrees from wall to wall.

Well, in the book it's done how I described.

If it is a real tight round corner they just do it by standing the studs close and making the radius.

As a Painter for the past 5 years I just come across my first new construction with drywall rounded corners...

Stupidiest idea yet.. for example where a hallway that is mocha meets lets say a dinning room that is off white.. There isnt a Natrual stop... doesnt matter ive tried laser levels and tape etc.. looks retarded

RockinRob, I know your post was quite a while ago but if you haven't solved your problem with painting rounded corners yet, I found a great tool, the BlendMate. It blends the two wall colors at the rounded corner! It looks amazing (not retarded!) I got mine online - I haven't seen it in any stores.
