@ronharper: I have also been swept away by The Anarchist Tool Chest and started dreaming about a chest with the tools needed to perform most tasks when building with wood. The more I think about it though it is probably the concept of “building things that outlast me” and the anti buy-use-throw ideas that I really like.

The tool chest that Chris describes in the book is really nice and I hope to build one. But for storing my tools and enable an efficient workspace I think that a wall mounted tool cabinet will work best in my shop. Floor space is precious in my tiny space, so it makes more sense to use the area on the walls.

For the moment most of my planes are stored in plastic containers to protect them from dust and humidity, saws, chisels and other tools are hung on a toolboard for now.
