What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Your question is too vague to answer specifically.

when I say what im looking to do, ppl say it cant be done. Im going to do it anyway. Now i need to choose what to use. I need something that sticks very well to concrete and wood. Something that's waterproof.

Well...underwater is one thing....wet areas are another....w/o mechanical fasteners of some sort very few (if any) adhesives will work by themselves.

Silicone will stick to almost anything...but has very little structural strength. Construction adhesive will also stick well...but w/o mechanical fastening during curing.....not much more strength.

We don't judge (too much) here...but if many people have said it won't work....maybe it won't.

Give us a try.

garage floor and inside wall. when water gets in garage it goes to this wall and soaks thru. Ive already fixed the leaking into garage, so all should be ok. However, id like a second barrier, just in case. So, id like to seal up the wall trim where it sits on garage concrete floor. Its in a place where i cant clean were well. Ive scraped the floor as much as possible.

I'd apply a heavy bead of silicone at the floor/wall junction. Most important, though, is to squeegee out any water which gets in, since you appear to have a pitch problem in the slab.

You could also install concrete backer underlayment 6" high on the wall and install 6" ceramic tile around the edge of the garage, sealing the seam at the bottom with silicone.
