There are lots of pics and plans around for building lathe benches. Some are pretty basic but functional, others are works of high cabinetmaking. Biggest issue for our community woodshop was the storage available by building our own pretty basic design bench. There is never enough space in any woodshop, and the made-by-the-manufacturer stands don’t have any storage. I know the Jet legs do have metal braces to hold a shelf, and thats useful. But you end up with a fairly narrow shelf
