Drywall to Wood Transition


Any suggestions on how to make the joint when you butt drywall to a timber frame post.


Yes, when making a butt joint to an exposed timber or to a window jamb, use a plastic J molding for drywall. The J molding is cut to length and slipped over the raw edge of the drywall. When installed it leaves a nice finished reveal which can be painted with the drywall. Wide side goes to the back.
