How big is the very big hole?

comment How deep should I drill a pilot hole in concrete for a 2 inch screw?
I'm not sure I can agree about the 1/4" minimum, but clearly the hole should be at least slightly deeper than the screw length, otherwise the screw will simply not go any deeper than the hole bottom.

comment Why is my bathroom floor raised up very high?
In my bathroom there's no "shower", I have a bathtub that just stands on the floor so there's no drain inside the floor, yet that whole floor is raised (something like an inch). I guess there's big reason behind this.

comment Is my kitchen cabinet door beyond repair?
Plan A looks promising. I guess epoxy-based compounds would work.

@RedGrittyBrick: That would work for through holes, but not for the hinges - those require holes of exactly the right depth and will completely even bottom and that requires a router. One minor deviation - and the panel is cut through and that's a permanent damage.

@woodchips: That's not a big problem. The anchor has to be force-hammered and then it will compact and will hold the screw quite well. So yes, you're right that it won't work the same way as if it would work in concrete, but it will work in another way.

@Tester101: Wow. Where I live if one wants metal shielding he uses metal hose around the cable. And doing so inside a kitchen cabinet is not a usual practice.

Just curious, what's the shiny flexible pipe inside the cabinet?
