    I've got 2 Craftsman boxes almost 6' tall with top, bottom, and middle sections. The 1st one I got as a Christmas present about 32 years ago. The second I got when my Dad past away. Its about 25-30 years old too. They look like heck (Sorry about the mess, I need to clean up and put stuff away) but they still hold tools. Only thing I ever had to do to either set was replace the casters to roll them around and lube the drawer slides.

    Once the garage is done it should look like this. I like being really organized.


    Then I will stuff a 40" - 50" tool chest combo in the corner like one of these.
    Just make sure it has ball bearing drawer slides, it makes a huge difference.

    Had to have a rollback truck bring home for me when I got a new job. Probably weighs a ton.

    I really like those tools chests, but I'm going to go a different route on my workshop. I like to have everything hanging up in front of my so I can see at a glace what I need, and more importantly, see what's not in it's place.

    My ideal layout is a combination of my shop classes in HS. Wood, metal and auto shop all had the tools like this and it was real nice to find what you wanted very quickly. End of class the teacher could see if anything was missing with just a glance.

    Thanks for posting the pics,
    Eddie

    There's no way I could ever get all my tools up on a pegboard like that, the only way to store them is in a box or drawers, I'll have to post mine on Monday, the pic is at work........

    </font><font color="blue" class="small">( no way I could ever get all my tools up on a pegboard )</font>

    Me, neither. That's the reason I said the picture only shows maybe a third of them. I had two 4' x 8' pegboards, but also had tools laying on top of and on a shelf under two 8' and one 6' workbench, plus some hanging on the walls, plus some on other shelves. But I do prefer having them out where I can see them instead of being in drawers. Of course in some situations a roll away toolbox is almost a necessity.

    Here's my stack. Got the top chest when I was in college and added the rest later. I like drawers for mechanics tools but I prefer cabinets for woodworking. Hope to be able to show that later this winter [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
