Toolboxes and Tool Bags: Totally Cool

Toolboxes might not sounds all that intriguing — until you see some of the products out there! And, of course, a toolbox could always be used for many things beyond just tools, depending on your storage needs. The one above is the Trusco toolbox, imported from Japan and sold by CB2 and Field. It has removable dividers to help organize the interior to fit your needs.

This is the Heco toolbox from Racquer, sold by Monapart Living; it comes in four colors. Monapart Living says, “It has three compartments, two plastic folding trays ... and adjustable separations every 5 cm in the drawers.”

If you need a toolbox that locks, head on over to Vaultz.

And here’s a neat idea: a toolbox with a front-loading drawer, from Best Made Company. As with more traditional toolboxes, you can still lift the top, which takes you to the tray — but you don’t have to deal with that if you want to get to things stored in the section below the tray.

Of course, toolboxes don't have to be metal. This is the leather toolbox sold by Kauffman Mercantile, designed and produced by Andrew McAteer. Kaufmann Mercantiles says, “The interior holds a standard hammer, pliers, wrench and a full set of screwdrivers.”

Here’s another leather tool case — this one from Germany, and sold by Labour and Wait.

I have a pink toolbag, with pink tools. I figured it was the easiest way to keep my tools from wandering into the garage.
I also have a very simple, small metal toolbox. I made a quilted lining, which just sits loose in the bottom and folds over the top of the contents. I use it to hold sewing gadgets when I go away. (I have a whole sewing room, so I don't use a sewing box at home.)

The leather tool bags are awesome! Finally a tool box that looks good and is still functional!
