New basement circuit help

I have a set of lights, to be controlled by 2 3-way switches.
I have another set, controlled by a single 1-way switch.

Plan is to run 14-2 power to 1st 3-way, run 14-3 wire to second switch,
then run 14-2 to the 1st set of lights.

My question is: where is a good place to run power from, for
the second 1-way switch and it's set of lights if everything
is one circuit?

As you described your setup, your only choice is to run power either from the first three way switch or from the panel.

Another alternmative is that you could use one extra wire in each cable beyond the first switch (14-4 instead of 14-3, 14-3 instead of 14-2) and get power from the light or the second switch.
