The walls in the basement in our 1930-era house are made of clay block (sample drawing below). I have two items I need to secure to the wall. One is a very small (7 inch long by 3 inch wide) shelf, which will be secured with brackets underneath the shelf. The other is a piece of wood 2-ft long, 4-in wide, 3/4-inch deep which will be secured flat directly to the wall. Are Tapcon screws and a masonry bit the correct thing to use in this case, or ... ? And will a regular drill work well, or should I get and use something like a hammer drill? Thanks.
