(continued from above) This may match up acceptably to the edge of your oak banding in the opening but then again maybe not.

comment Attractive way to hide screw heads in 8mm oak
Are you saying that because you have drywall that would come right up even with the edge of your oak trim? If so I would comment that you may never get a decent finish on drywall butted up against a trim piece. Instead the overall edge of the drywall really should be fully concealed under another trim that bands the opening face. If you use the pine boards as suggested the face trim band will also be able to cover the edge of the pine board. ---- It is possible to prefinish the drywall edge with metal corner beading and then tape in the corner up to the beading.

comment Mounting a TV on a chimney breast
All true. It may be good advice for a new user of Tapcons to watch one of numerous web videos that show how it is typical to pulse trigger the driver to screw in the fastener in steps and then stop just at the instant the head snugs tight against the surface of the item being fastened.

comment Mounting a TV on a chimney breast
When installing Tapcons it is important to not over-torque the fastener. This is especially true for soft brick or masonry materials and when fasteners have the hex style driver heads. In my experience past a certain point the Tapcon can strip out and leave you with a fastener that does not stay tight.

comment What is coming out of my pipe and how can I fix it?
This could be a case of the original solder job being done with an acid core solder that was never neutralized and properly cleaned up. The acid could be eating a hole through the copper pipe which in turn lets water come out and work at further corroding the pipe joint.

If the water was already hot you would have no need for a heater.

comment What is wrong with this panel wiring?
Another thing that looks very odd - but probably not a problem - is that the black / red feed colors are swapped going through the cutoff switch.
