comment How should I route my dryer exhaust pipe?
Its a possible fire hazard because if the lint cannot escape due to blockage it will back up in the pipe, potentially all the way back to the dryer which can ignite it.

comment How do I get invisible edges on my spackle jobs?

comment What is/are the proper method and tools for drilling into masonry?
For a small job like you're doing you can probably get by with a regular drill. The impact drill does tend to work a little more easily with stone/masonry because stone is more brittle than wood.

Plaster generally won't snap drill bits. It's too soft. Masonry, however, will.
