Crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter are a great way for the little guy to get complete strangers to fork out their money on the promise of a great product. While product ideas are plentiful, it is rare to see a product not only be successfully funded, but also make their way into retail stores nationwide. Let me tell you, I was genuinely happy to learn that the Centipede Sawhorse was one of the few that made it.

Tool bags are probably the best way to organize and keep the tools you use most within arm’s reach, however, they also have a habit of getting in the way when you are working in tight spaces.

Portable organizational systems typically feature some type of box with a lid, they might even have removable cups that make using one item at a time easier for the user. But what if there was a better way to get organized? What if the cups themselves had lids, and instead of a large storage case, these cups attached to a framework to join with other cups?

You know what it's like to get calls from telemarketer's trying to sell you everything from life insurance to carpet cleaning products, and all you can do is wonder how your name got on their list? Well, that is what my email inbox looks like, and that is just emails about new Kickstarter projects. And while many of the projects that are seeking funding are cool, most would not fit into the Tool category. But every once in a while I get an email about a new product, it falls into the tool category, and it is not lame;...
