Workshop Information

United States
I am just starting my workshop. I have owned a few tools for years, but just started to get serious about it. A week ago, I actually cleaned and aligned my tablesaw for the first time since I bought it. I have the following equipment:
1) Ryobi BTS15 Tablesaw
2) Pro Tech Contractor 12" Miter saw
3) Ryobi Plunge Router (A recent new fav over the table saw)
4) Dewalt Orbital Sander
5) Skill Jigsaw
6) Biscuit Joiner
7) Kegorator

I have just found Google Sketchup! I am proficient in Photoshop so it has been a fairly painless switch, but I am in love. Two days later and I made the model of my shop. I would love comments on it. I am going to see if I can get the .skp file on line too. I am trying to crowd-source my decisions on how to set this up, and as far as I am concerned it is Tabula Rasa!

P.S. I have a severe lack of light in my shop. Any ideas outside of hard wired lights and halogen stands?
