"Plugging Sheetrock Holes:"

From: Bill Bamford bbamford@albanytech.org

Using a sheetrock saw cutout the rectangular sheetrock opening with 45 degree angle cuts (all pointing toward the center of the cut). When covering the hole, using the piece removed as a plug, place glue or sheetrock mud on the edges of the hole, press the piece removed into its original location. Press the piece into the wall slightly deeper than originally to prevent a bump in the wall after refinishing. Whoever has to refinish the sheetrock will appreciate your efforts!
