Any discrepancy is going to show up more with horizontal boards or panels. If you could do vertical boards, or a solid panel, I doubt if the levelocity would be a problem. (my spell check doesn’t like “levelocity,” but it makes me smile when people look startled upon hearing it. It’s vertical correspondent is plumbilical).

Most remodelers know that it’s a rare house that is perfectly plumb and level anywhere. I didn’t realize how out of level my kitchen ceiling was until I was putting up the crown. Instead of trying to scribe the molding, I simply squeezed lightweight spackle into the gap at one end. Being white, like the ceiling, it doesn’t show at all, whereas the dark colored gap was very noticeable.
