Looks good Greg, but I fear it is a bit top heavy........?
I wonder if you could put a shelf on the middle and back side, and lay some bags of sand on there?

I dunno Stu, a lot of folks get by pretty well with that stand and lathe combo. I think the wide stance makes up for some of the lack of mass.
Greg, my only observation is that lathe is way too clean. Congrats on the new heights, though.

I think it will be OK, as I don't turn large blanks with it. I do plan on building a shelf/cabinet for the middle support area. I've seen a few in the past.
I did vacume/blow chips off before I installed it on the stand.... Wife is coming up with some more kitchen projects, some turned ones.
