I have a 1930s British house with skirting boards, I want to run Ethernet from some points around the house, I have got the cable under the floorboards, but I now need to cut out some back boxes, I have managed to re-purpose an existing satellite port that I wont ever use to be ethernet, but the other rooms do not have any spare wall sockets.
I think I understand how to cut the hole for the back box by drilling and chiselling out. What im struggling to find advice on, is how do I channel a hole behind the skirting board without damaging it or the wall? A long drill bit I would still be at an angle?
I don't want to take off the skirting board as I would 100% damage it and its already painted.
This is the one I re-purposed in the front room.
