Fair play to you, but that was 10 years ago and you did a 6 week intensive course - the OP is reluctantly thinking he might, just might, pay for a 1 week course then try to get free training by bothering a skilled guy who he is seeking to take future work from.

There are right ways of doing things and there are wrong ways. This is not about opinion, there are industry standards and methods laid out if people bother to look.

That's the point though...I don't care, I do it how's easiest for me and so it looks fine....I would never bother to look if that helps as I wouldn't be bothered what the answer was

If you're trimming your revels back afterwards, how are you holding a rule across the wall/window? Genuine question.
If your trimming them back afterwards.ur guna have 1 reveal at 7 inch the other at 9 inch..bead to bead straight edge
