Cutting Drywall to Size

Align the drywall square so the top of the T rests on the board’s edge, and hold the blade with your toe. With a utility knife, score through the paper on the front, snap the sheet back to make a V, and reach over to score the paper in the valley. Now snap the sheet the other way to break it free, and use the square to mark the stud centers.
