Kind of hard to say without seeing a photo or drawing. Don’t be tempted to put it up against a wall for space. Leave lots of room around it for access.

Think about how dust collection can be attached.

Where will your lathe tools sit while you are working?

Will you do any outboard turning and need room at the ends/

Can you place it near a natural light sourse?
