I did end up moving the tools to the opposite side of the cart this morning.
It's hard to tell, but I do have a baffle directly under the lathe to direct any shavings that fall straight down, or to the back to accumulate on the back side of the lathe.
I've also got a little dust hood I use to try and collect most of the shavings or dust.
I like the idea of a plastic sheet on the front to keep shavings from accumulating. I think I'll add that to the cart as well.
