It's official! This is my new mark!
I know, I know, this is similar to @Dan Eden's. That was not my intention. I chose to use crossed tools as my new mark because I build things.
This logo came out of my first experience with Adobe Illustrator, so if it's not perfect, that's why!

Using it officially might not seem much of a deal right now but can be a pain later on. I'd say, think again man.
Keep practicing until you feel like you've got what it takes. I've been using Illustrator for almost 2 yrs. Yet can't fix on my personal mark.
Good luck :)
Other than saying “Hey, that’s mine!”, my main concern is that the heads of the tools look a little off. They’d look better to me if they faced outward instead of inward.
Uh, well. It was similiar in the first place – but using an almost identical gif? http://dribbble.com/shots/860710-Monogram
@Daniel C. B. @Dan Eden the concept wasn't an original idea, but the execution was completely original. I merely loved the way Dan presented his logo so I decided to go with a gif as well.
Dan, thanks for the feedback! I'll play around with flipping the heads and see how it turns out!
In fact, I began with an 'x' set in Helvetica Neue and tweaked it to get some nice angles and handles, and then added in some heads.
@Devin Halladay Allright. Often the idea matters more than the execution, in my opinion. At least when it is used for the same thing.
@Daniel C. B. the idea wasn't unoriginal as in it was Dan's idea, it was unoriginal in the sense that it's been done so many times before. Regardless, thanks for your insight! It's always nice to hear some criticism; it allows me to check myself and my philosophy.
