This system works for me.
Mine are divided into groups too !!
Tools I can easily find (usually big power tools)
Tools a little harder to find
Tools I want to find
Tools I need to find

You forgot: Tools that are hard to find but cheap to replace....

Anyone need a mini-rake, cause I have about four of them....

I'm a big fan of The Bucket Method.

In fact, right now I have at least six 5 gallon buckets of tools somewhere in the house. Now If I could just find them...

Tool storage


My father-in-law uses a large piece of plyboard attached on the wall above his workbench. He drew silhouettes of each tools and used small screw-in hooks and nails to hang everything. He puts most of his hand tools here. Easy to find what you want right away. Otherwise a small tool tray to carry what tools you need may suffice.

The initial setup is time-consuming but for keeping things in order you can't beat it.

I am throwing my 2 cents in here becasue I assume this is a DIY forum and nto for contractors.

Tool storage


I've always been kinda partial to the sturdy "bag style" setup for all my frequently used smaller tools. They're portable and seem to last unless you abuse them.

I also use a main tool storage box that stays home and is sort of a Mothership for my tools.

Saw this bad boy the other day for those interested: Pelican 0450 Mobile Toolchest Looks like this thing could withstand a ton of abuse.
