Tips of FLAT 90 Edge Beads and well as Wall patches

Whats your secret sauce on compouding on Exterior Corners to get a flat 90.

I need to make a couple holes in my walls as well to fish some wires..

Aside from the usual bevel on both sides of the edges, and then feathering out the compound...is there any tips on making the wall as flat as possible...

Basically you just feather out the joint compound. The edge at the 90` doesn't get any j/c, you use it as a guide for your knife.

I like to use dry wall nails on corners instead of screws, the heads are thinner and cover easier. As far as the holes in the wall patching them depends on on how big they are and if you have lathe or drywall that needs to be repaired.
