Oh I feel your pain. I've been there done that. I had my finger hanging over the side of a T-square while cutting a piece of drywall and WHACK!!! Tip came right off. Just like you said, nail and all. It's amazing how sharp those little blades are!

That's exactly what happened to me. My fingertip was hanging over the edge of the t-square. Normally I lay the drwall flat or work off of saw horses, but I was scoring them with drywall leaning up against the wall vertically due to tight space down there. I was scoring from the bottom upward and took the tip clean off. Oh well.....it builds character.....right?

They should put a warning on those things. My "accident" happened in 2001 and my finger is still lop sided (the drywall was straight as an arrow though). Your right, it builds character and I bet you never have it happen again. Every time I touch that square I move my fingers to the middle.

You're right.....I'm sure I'll be extra cautious in the future. I think I'm going to go home tonight and hang the last 2 sheets of drywall. Hopefully I don't lose another fingertip. I want to get moving on the taping and trim work, so I can get my tile set behind the brewing station. Today has been brutal at work.

A couple of updated pics.....subpanel installed to accommodate the brewery, high efficiency boiler system installed to heat the basement floors, and cement board and most of the drywall up. I'm going to hang the last 2 pieces of drywall today and move onto the finish. Hopefully I can keep my remaining digits intact.

Thanks. I did manage to hang the last 2 sheets of drywall to the right of the brewing station without any further injuries. This weekend I want to rip the log trim pieces to trim out the front and sides of the ventilation hood, then get them knifed. If time permits, I may start priming the drywall.

I'm taking a poll......with all things considered such as red cedar logs, knotty pine paneling, polished travertine stone tile, tumbled travertine stone tile, and a sh*t load of stainless steel in the brewery what color I should paint the room. I'm open to any and all suggestions......help me out!

Hey Hoppo,
what did you use for the board behind your keggles? Doesn't look regular sheet rock there - keep up the good work and detailed posts.

It's 1/2" thick 3' x 5' Durarock cement board. This stuff:

I always use cement board as my foundation to tile on. I just don't trust the structural integrity of tiling directly over drywall, especially in an area that will be prone to moisture. I did use moisture and mold resistant sheet rock on either side of the cement board though.

As far as paint, I would say something neutral that will not draw the eyes away from the brewery. You've made it too nice to have the wall color overshadow it.
