Tools and the act of building out a toolbox were a right of passage in my family. My grandfathers were both tradesmen – a welder and a naval diesel mechanic – and my father is a plumber. The ability to work with your hands was almost a requirement from the womb. All of these men were critical in both teaching me how to work with my hands but also how to properly use all different kinds of tools. Fortunately, these men also took great pride in helping me put together a toolbox that would help me later in life. In this article, I’ll introduce you to the methodology of building a toolbox for your suburban homestead and what kind of tools you should have in it.
