Getting Organized

I haven't updated this for a long time so here we go....organizing my shop and other projects.
Here's a forklift I bought March 2013.  It's a Farmall BN tractor conversion by the now Defunct John's manufactuing.  A very sought after forklift by Orchards, collectors and others.

Restoring 3 Antique Perfection Kerosene heaters.  Here I am repairing the holes in the tanks also called founts.  If you leave kerosene sit unsealed, it will draw moisture from the air and it will collect under the kerosene and rust the bottom of the tank.  That is why you must empty the tank when stored or not used or at least once a year.
Here's some of the parts I had polished and nickel plated.  I have others out getting Porcelainized enameled.
Here is the status of my shaving horse seat.  Not finished yet.
Here's a beautiful S'mores bar I made for a friend's daughter's wedding.  I had to buy an 8in dia Dado blade to make the box joints for this and I really learned(through mistakes) how to correctly make box joints on the table saw with a Dado blade and my home made jig.
I recently bough a used drywall cart on Craigslist to store and move my hoods around on- works great and takes up no additional space.
I made 36 feet worth of these tool hanger boards.  Tip: pre-finish the boards before drilling the dowel holes or finish will run down in the holes.  This will help take advantage of wall space and get stuff off of the floor.
Organizing my paint brushes with some scrap walnut and Powermags from Fastcap.com
Organizing tools on my table saw/router table.
Organizing the storage area of my shop with the shelving/racking I bought in 2010.
