I’m not a turner at all, but my wife is and she likes the grinder 1 step away from the headstock of the lathe. Also, she got these 1 1/8 inch threaded sections of rod that have bolt holes in them to attach to a wall. Basically, you thread the checks to the wall, makes them easy to get to.

My grinder will probably be about 3 steps away. I have seen turner’s tool boards where they used heavy duty dowels that were fastened on an angle so that the chucks slipped over them but had seen the threaded rod idea. Sounds like your wife has a nice set-up!
