"Brian, Yes, the Kreg Jig and pocket hole joinery will work well; however, 1x3 strips will have limitations--- depending on their condition and what you plan to build. "

"I used Hardibacker panels under Swanstone solid surface panels which make one of the nicest showers around -- you can scrub it with brillo pads and no grout lines.  The screws are course thread 0.195 in diam., but definitely not brittle like…"

"Thanks Rick, The "square drive" is the feature in the head--- which dictates the type and size of driver bit to install/remove the screws. The "type of screw", which is the style and thread-pitch, is the main factor for use in…"

"Durock is good.  Prime and paint with mildewcide like Zinsser bath paint, and then use exterior caulk the top of the shower.  Don't use drywall screws.  HardiBacker is also good."

Cement Backer Board

Hi All,I'm finishing a bathroom project with a fiberglass shower.  I have a 18" opening around the top of the shower.  I bought cement backer board to cover the opening.  I'm not planning to tile the opening - probably just a couple coats of latex/waterproof paint.  Is Durock backer board correct or should I use another type of cement drywall?Thanks,-BrianSee More

"Hi Jay.  Thanks for the reply.  I like the idea of opening the wall and adding more support.  That way I could build 2x4 supports in the wall to secure the wall mount."

Mounting a Flat-Screen TV

I'm thinking about mounting a flat screen on my wall.  Problem is I have plaster & lathe walls.  Here's my plan.  Mount a 3/4" plywood backer board using 3" lag bolts to the studs big enough to securely hold the wall mount bracket.  Mount the bracket to the backer board using many, many 1 1/2" lag bolts.  Thoughts? See More
