Default Re: patching drywall?

WOW! TONS of great replies. The patched areas will really be all over the place. Some are on the ceiling, some on normal walls but behind things (like the fridge), others on normal walls but exposed, and others behind cabinets. The ceiling is probably the biggest job because I knocked down a wall and am joining the ceilings in two rooms.

Just1more, when you say "Rasp it down about 1.5 inches from the edge, from about 1/8" to nothing," do you mean that the very edge should only be 1/8" or less thick?

Garett, thanks for the picture. That's pretty much what I had in mind.

Another dumb question: why are square holes easier to patch?
