Putty Taping

what is a good technique for filling gaps in dry wall?

please recommend tools, putty & tape. THANKS!!!

wjk31092 had it right. It completely depends on what you are doing and the conditions. You use different drywall around the shower in a bathroom than in a living room for example. You use different techniqes for a crack vs a panel. Consequently, the materials and tools are also different.

I had one job that I did illustrateds the importance of this. I was to repair cracks that others had previously been repaired by multiple other people. Their repairs typically lasted a year or two. Mine showed no cracking when I checked them seven years later. It was not a difference in skill, but in materials that I used.

BTW, the term putty is wrong. You will probably use joint compound of some kind. Again, it depends on what the task is.
