Taping an odd, angled inside corner on a wall or ceiling can be difficult, so James LaGrotta  of Boonton Township, N.J., devised a better way to create straight, smooth, uniform curved joints with very little fuss. As Chuck Miller demonstrates, in just a few steps, Jim’s tip saves time, money, and a lot of frustration.
