I have a couple thoughts for your consideration: I would move the fixture in the north east quadrant toward the east so you will not be working in your shadow when using the lathe and jointer. I would probably rotate the one in the NW quadrant 90 degrees to provide better lighting for those tools. As you age, your eyes need more lumens to see as well as they do today. If possible paint the walls white to better reflect the light in the shop. Get fixtures that have reflectors to direct more light downward. HTH
