I purchased a lathe for my wife for Christmas as a way to spend shop time together. A bench was needed before she could get started. I obtained the plans for a Roubo bench from Stumpy Nubs (WWW.atumpynubs.com). While my skills don’t do justice to the plans, I am happy with the results and have learned a few things. Plus, I needed to finally have something to put in the ‘my projects’ section – grin. The bench, while simply made of 2×6 pine boards, is fairly heavy and quite sturdy.
Edit: updated with picture of the new turner and her lathe.
