I'm in the midst of a shop remodel and I'm moving from a cabinet to wall layout for my tools. I'm debating on what tools I should keep readily available and those that will eventually go down below my workbench in the drawers. 

Anyone have some decent tips on what's worked for them?

What finish do you guys use? I've always used Mahoneys walnut oil on my bowls and have started using it on my cutting boards. I don't like the typical mineral oil because it never dries. Thoughts?

I've used them since I started woodworking but recently started to notice that when I use them on places like legs or table tops where theres an edge, the finish doesn't seem to dry as fast as the rest of the surface. Think i'm using bad tack cloths? Which brand do you use?

I didn't take too many pictures throughout the process, but this gives you the basic steps required and some gotchas.
