You will have to move the jointer and planer out from the wall to use them anyway where they are in Jbays layout so since they need to be portable, you can move them closer to your dust collector when you use them. Assuming you are going to put your lumber rack on the long empty wall in Jbay’s layout, you could just put them there below the rack and might not have to move them to use them? Another option for where to store the planer is to make a lower mobile stand for it and roll it under the L-shaped bench when not in use.

I would put the bandsaw next to the drill press (where the planer is in Jbay’s layout). That way you can set the DP’s table height to act as outfeed support when resawing long boards. That would free up that small angled wall for a tool wall or chest and have it relatively close to the bench/outfeed table.
