Did you see our BLOG about how the Pro's set up their shape rooms? If not, check it out http://foamez.blogspot.com/2016/08/a-look-at-how-pros-set-up-their-shaping.html . There is a lot of great information about lighting and more.
Best of luck.

The chain adjustment system you have is KISS brilliant! Mike
Whats the general consensus on Top shelves? Are they to reduce glare for comforts sake, or as Barry suggests do they serve a true purpose (other than being useful for storage) of directing light towards the blank?
I use LED's and they are a little annoying without some sort of 'cover' to help with the secondary glare.
Fluoro's are even less directional so the box helps send more light towards the board.
Barry's setup is just plain awesome!
Be safe, have fun. -J
