Best Tool Storage For Your Garage Or Workshop

This post is sponsored by The Home Depot.
Garage tool storage doesn't have to be frustrating!

My garage was a huge mess because I needed a proper system to store all the tools I'd been collecting lately. 

At the end of last year, I built a cabinet to store drills and batteries, and it's been a lifesaver to keep both in one place and have an easy way to charge those batteries. Check that built right HERE.

However, I still needed help organizing all the small tools and accessories. 


Because I didn't have the proper storage solutions for those tools, would you believe it if I told you that this plastic organizer you see in the picture below was what I've used for the past 10 years to store scissors, blades for many of my tools, chisels, gloves, etc.?

YEP. Pitiful. 😔

Imagine my joy when this big box arrived last week!

Unpacking my new Husky tool chest was easy. It was already assembled.

Look at this gorgeous, shiny, and sturdy tool chest! 
The handle and the cord wrap brackets were the only parts I had to install.

I also had to place the 14 Premium drawer liners inside each drawer.

The quality of this workbench is exceptional. The drawers are spacious and easy to roll in and out. The finish, as you can see, is beautiful. The entire chest is very sturdy yet easy to maneuver thanks to the six large, 5 In. x 2 In. swivel casters.


This workbench is 24 in. deep, 6 in. deeper than most standard rolling tool cabinets. It provides more usable storage space that is strong enough to support 1,600 lbs. and has a 31,721 cu. In. capacity.
The 1-inch thick solid wood top is sealed with a protective polyurethane coating to protect it from the elements. 

Each drawer is equipped with 100-lb.-rated ball-bearing slides. And the deeper bottom drawers have double 100-lb.-rated slides to store heavier bulk items.

Guys, I set aside plenty of time the following day to gather most of the tools I had around the garage. I sent many tools to the basement while the cleaning and organizing were done in the garage.

While working on organizing those tools, I got my MILWAUKEE M18 Lithium-Ion Cordless PACKOUT Radio/Speaker with Built-in Charger - And man, I had a party in here!!  🎵

The sound is fantastic

The Milwaukee PACKOUT radio + charger is the Ultimate job-site sound system. It is fully compatible with all PACKOUT storage system solutions. This 10-speaker sound system delivers 360° sound.

It delivers full-range connectivity with Bluetooth 4.2, auxiliary input, and an AM/FM radio. The Bluetooth speaker also features a built-in M18 charger. This heavy-duty job-site radio has a 2.1 Ah USB output to keep M18 batteries and mobile devices charged all day.

I had lots of fun organizing most of my small tools, and here I want to show you how the big drawers are looking now:


This is the one to store all the drill bits - On the right side, I stored some hand tools.

This second drawer is for spade bits, measuring and leveling tools, laser levels, stud finders, and digital measures.

|  BOSCH Spade Bit Set | Bosch Carbide Tipped Drill Bit Set  |  Bosch Laser Level | Laser Distance Measurer | Zircon Stud Finder |


The third drawer is the Dremel drawer. All the Dremel accessories and blades are stored here.

I have a good stash of my favorite Multi-Max 1-1/2 in. oscillating tool Universal Carbide Flush Cutting Blades. I like to have plenty of these blades because they're good at cutting through most materials: wood, metal, plastic, and cement. 

Whenever I go through a renovation, I almost always need my oscillating tool to get me out of trouble!

Cutting devices, blades, and small tools to work with glass are stored here in drawer number four.


Kreg tools and clamps are in drawer number five. I have more Kreg tools somewhere; it's just a matter of finding them. ;)

Impact sockets and my beloved mechanic's toolset are in this drawer.

I used the deepest drawer to store small tools: the Kreg jig, the Dremel rotary tool, Multi-Max, Saw-Max...

I like the Milwaukee extended reach ratchet kit because it has tons of power, a slim head profile, and an extended neck that's neat when reaching tight spaces.

This kit is part of the M12 system that features over 80 tools.

All the other drawers on the left are still empty. I need to bring tools from the basement, but that will happen much later when I finish organizing the garage.

I'm in love with the solid wood top!

Without a doubt, I'm a happy girl these days!! :)

My recommendations for the best tool storage chest if you are in the market for one...

  • Find out what type of tools you need to store in the chest. Are they large, medium, or small?
  • If all the tools are comparable in size, you may need a tool chest with drawers of similar size.
  • Measure the tools and pay attention to the size of the drawers on the tool chests you're contemplating. Husk tool chests come in many varieties... Deep pockets, shallow pockets, a mix of both, etc.
  • The tool chest I got has very shallow drawers, precisely what I needed for storing small tools and parts.
  • Tools are heavy! Go for a sturdy chest.
  • Casters make all the difference. Make sure they're strong and can be locked.
  • You can also choose among many finishes. Black, white, silver, red.
  • Many finishes also for the top... Wooden, metal, flip-top, etc.
