james,

thank you for your pieces of advice!
When you work with concrete, cement without gloves it make sores on your arms!

Jaroslav,

Where in Poland are you? I think you are our first builder and member from Poland -- congratulations on that.

Have you started working on your oven? I would be very interested in hearing how it goes for you finding building materials, and how they are different from what we know from the U.S., UK, Australia, Italy, etc.

James

I know, I know....

but I still find myself playing with the cement without gloves sometimes
...have worn off my fingerprints though

moisturizing lotions are recommended before and after working with your hands.

keep workplace clean to avoid tripping hazards

BLUE GLOVES are now at the home centers. They are acrylic knit gloves that stay cool and un-sweaty, while the palms and fingers are dipped into blue rubber-like substance! Get them! Use them!

Yeah, but do they come in any size other than humongous? I have a terrible time finding tools and equipment sized for a female- I'm not even that small, but a lot of tools and even safety equipment just don't fit me well, and an improperly sized tool can cause all kinds of musculoskeletal trouble. Do not ask how I know this...

The only place so far to have gloves which are small enough, protective enough (although for construction, not masonry), and articulated enough (hard to hold a hammer with fingers that won't bend) is the Duluth Trading Company. Until I found them, I had to use gardening gloves, which just aren't made for anything else. I will try to find the blue gloves and see if they fit well enough to use- nothing is more irritating than gloves with fingertips which are baggy and longer than your finger.

When I do tile work, I use a couple of pairs of rubber gloves over top of each other, and the sweat is awful indeed- so if these work for me I'll be a happy camper.

I think they only have one size at the HD, but you can get more sizes from an industrial supplier. There are lots of them, here's the one I use:

Wow! Thanks so much- I'll try the ones at the home store on, and if they're too big I'm going to order some smaller ones. Now all I need is a respirator that isn't bigger than my face!

I may have missed it but its also a wise choice not to work alone. Have someone around, you never know what could happen.

My cabinet making instructor once nailed himself to a workpiece with a nail gun. He wasn't badly hurt (fortunately) but he had to wait for someone to come to free his hand.
