I finally finished my lathe stand/work bench today. It's not exactly fine woodworking, but it's exactly what I wanted. It's made of basic materials. The top is 3/4-inch utility grade plywood, the legs are pressure treated 2x4's, and it's braced with 2x6 pine. Other than the top is 60x48, it looks like an average bench, but it only stands at 29". Perfect for turning (for me).
