Too young to have good tools. Use my dads, and what he doesn't have he'* got access to at work. When I get my own place I will have a good tool set.

Yeah I tend to buy the tools when I need them. I have tools I havent used since the project I needed it for was completed, but if I ever need to do a similar project I have the tools required to do the job.

I dont have that many tools but I do have doubles of some. I am going to start picking up tools here and there should I find them on sale or clearance at Sears.

Anyone got pics of your tool boxes?

This set up is my brothers. Yeah im jealous, but since hes a mechanic he needs to buy allot of tools which I get to borrow if the need arises

Got my beast of a toolbox at Costco..

The warehouses like Sams, Costco, BJ'*.. they are soo much more reasonable than the rest of the places.

Of course..I'm in need of a bigger box..

Most if not all of the two car garrages I have seen have those supports in the middle. Reason being there is no load bearing wall to support the house thats above, which is usually a bedroom or two.
