Saves you the hassle of picking up for the store as well. Good move. Even going to open it or wait until you need it for something?

I should just wait and keep it nicely in the box but I'll probably open it because I wanna see it and make sure it works.

How's the miter saw Corey? Did you have to spend some time zeroing it in? Especially for 45 cuts? Pics of projects you have done with it. Aka workbench and end tables

You can see my toolbox in this picture. My parents got it for me for either a Christmas or Birthday gift about 5 years ago. I have moved it to 4 different houses now. It's a stackable 3 piece so not horrible to move. There are definitely pros of having something like this, but since I don't have to bring tools to a worksite I love my big boy toolbox. I'm lucky enough to get a bunch of hand tools from my dad too. When he gets a new socket set, wrench set, etc I inherit the old.

Note: This is BEFORE I started cleaning my garage on Friday. I should have taken an after pic.

I don't have room for A large tool box. My with beech is right next to our oil tank. My only solution is the peg board which is too expensive for my blood.

I won't get a nice tool box like that until after we buy a house and I have a place to put it.

Hmm weird. Last time I searched pegboard this was not an option. Didn't see it in store either.

I think I'm going to pick up a jigsaw this weekend. I'll need one if I ever decide to make that arcade cabinet, but in the meantime I want to make a busy board for Evie --new thread coming for that.

I would like to do Milwaukee, but it's $150 and I only have the M12 batteries. M12 have never failed me for the drill or impact driver, but I'm not sure how well it would work for a jigsaw
Update: After reading reviews it seems like this is actually plenty powerful with the small batteries. I still can't swallow the $150 price though.
2nd Update: It's only $99 if I buy the tool only and not another battery - http://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwaukee-M1 ... /203353459

If I go corded and cheap as possible (Harbor Freight) I can get one for $30
If I go corded and respectable - $40- $60

I got a super cheap cordless one a couple years ago but I haven't really needed it for anything. I think it's Black and Decker :oops:

Nothing to be ashamed of!
I've been thinking if I go cordless I should get Milwaukee so all my batteries are compatible; I didn't consider getting a new brand of cordless. I will realistically use this saw 1-2 times a year so it's silly I am seriously considering the $99 option. If I'm going to spend $60 though, I might as well spend $100.

Edit: Not finding a saw+battery+charger for less than $99 anyways.

I think I'm going with this $30 one from Skil. Cordless would be nice, but it's not a requirement.

I'll get it Friday after work.

Now that we will have a house, there are a few upcoming projects that I want to do.
Work bench for garage - there's already some built in cabinets and a little shelf/bench space but I don't remember how big it is so I'll have to check that when we move in
Entry-way shelves/coat hangers - our house doesn't have a coat closet near the entrance so I want to do something to hang coats and store shoes
Bar for basement/man cave - there's a huge open space for this in the basement. I feel like I might get a bit too ambitious with the plans, but we'll see.

Something like a mudroom bench?

Oh yeah, you are going to get really carried away. Do you want a sink? Built in kegerator?

Potentially. I might do just the shelf/coat hanger thing to mount on the wall and then maybe something separate for shoes if we do anything for shoes since we already have a shoe rack at our place now.

A wet bar would be nice but I don't know anything about pluming and I don't think there is any pluming near the space I would put it. Probably no kegerator....probably
