If those are open shelves on either side, you might want some curtains or something to keep the dust and debris out/off of them.

My 2nd thought is you really don t need as much room behind the lathe as you need in front of it, but then again, cleaning up will be easier if you can easily get back there, and of course you will also need room to access the shelves (and what s on them?).

I had already decided on doing some type of curtains surrounding the lathe…working out the details on that now…looking at maybe doing unistrut suspended from the ceiling.

I agree with your comment about less room behind so I will probably push the lathe a little further away from the workbench to have more space on the front side…looking at maybe 40”-42”.
