- Limited Space (seems odd to list this as a thing I like but hear me out): I like the limited space as it has forced me to consider my tools carefully and to weed out the crap. I can maintain what I can keep in the box and what I have sold that was extra has provided cash for filling in the missing pieces and upgrading the poorer tools. I have tools I like, I don't have more than I can maintain, I know where to find them.
- Organization: I know where all my tools are and they are within easy reach. I get out what I'm using and put it back when I'm done.
- Environment: My tools stay clean and dry and are ready to used
- Access: Everything is right near my bench or wherever I need it to be I can wheel my chest there.

Here are some things I like about the tool chest:
