Here is a photo of the lathe that I built from a ShopNotes plan (ShopNotes Vol13, Issue 73) that my son Jeff got for me. I made several faceplates, a doughnut chuck, and a curved tool rest to use making bowls. I did change some things as the belt drive cover as I did not have any plexiglass to make the cover as shown in the plan. The headstock is just a 5/8" bolt set in bearings that I got at Ace Hardware. Getting everything centered so the tail and head stock lined up was a challange. Here are a couple of bowls that I turned on the lathe.
