Joining butt end of bullnose cornerbead

Posted by ijensen (My Page) on

We recently removed the wall between the living room and kitchen and now have a long support beam between the two rooms. We plan to have the newly installed sheet rock (which covers the steel beam) finished with bullnose corner bead. We haven't been able to find any longer than 10 feet long sections of the bullnose, so it will have to be joined. How do you join the two ends of the bullnose and make it look nice? Any help would be appreciated!!!

You mean the plastic stuff?

Glue and some careful fitting.

That product is intended to be partially covered with drywall compound---it is not the final trim. Joints will be covered.
