I got a new camera (Canon EOS 1000D) a few days ago, so I decided to give it a try. This shot was taken at 28mm, f/4.0, 1/160, ISO 1600 and with a time delay.
That's a nice photo...
However , as the camera seems to have been placed on a stable surface, you had the option to reduce the ISO Number to say 100 or 80, with a time delay, and that would have given you a greatly clear photograph. Increasing ISO number increases noise in the pic, as also visible - though, your camera did do a good job at that high ISO.
(By 'clarity', I am not pointing at 'focus'... Rather electronic noise.)

The camera was on a tripod at about one foot above the table. I used a high ISO because the lighting. The room was very dark. Had I been able to stand completely still, I would have lowered the ISO, shutter speed, and aperture to get a nicer photo. But, I had to work with what I was given.
Hopefully my wife will let me invest in some good lighting stands some day.

No, you dont need lighting in this case as you have a tripod.
In fact, that's precisely what tripods are good for - to let you take low ISO photos in existing light situations using long exposures and high F-numbers without having the photo spoiled by the 'shake' that comes in if you take it with the camera in your hands...
