Welcome to the wonderful world of hand tools. You are DEAD ON in your original post. This is exactly how I organize my own tools. I absolutely LOVE my general purpose pegboard area, which I completely purged last Winter, and began anew, even making some of my own hangers. The question I had to ask is what tools were REALLY needed in that area. (A tape measure is among them). Really helps quickly find these items when doing general work. The wrenches, sockets and the like go in the drawers of the tool chest at one end of the bench by the GP pegboard. The most used hand powered wood working tools go in a cabinet. Small power tools are stored in a repurposed kitchen cabinet with deep drawers and under the GP bench below the pegboard. I find this arrangement helps work flow enormously, and I can find what I need easily. One does have to be diligent about returning tools to their correct place, but that’s a good habit for everyone to develop.
