comment What nominal lumber size is 11/16?
It is fairly common practice to not have moldings line up flush, but to have a slight offset, called a reveal. It often adds a bit of character and avoids the problem of trying to get exact, which is very hard unless you glue up boards and replane them to flush.

comment Why does my one-way switch have 4 wires?
The answers below work. If you are adding a dimmer, be sure it is not a type that needs a neutral (white wire). The setup you show does not seem to have a neutral in the box (unless it is hidden).

comment Can I use backer rod and adhesive to fill in the gap between the toilet and the ceramic tile floor?
The first question probably should be is the toilet steady (really rigid) on the floor? If so, we can move on to filling gaps.
