Cutting large sheets (4' x 8') of drywall can be a hassle. A sheet of drywall can weigh over 50 pounds. Not only that, drywall is wobbly and hard to manage.

But you can cut entire lengths of drywall easily, even without setting the sheets flat on the floor.

Get your 48" drywall square. Square the "T" end with the left side of the drywall. With your utility knife, score a line as far as you can.

Next, square up on the right side. Complete the score.
