One thing I would definitely recommend with your lathe placement is to have nothing hanging over it within 3 feet and nothing in front of it about 6 or 7 feet if you intend to turn green wood. I did that for the first time not too long ago and shavings got flung all over the place. They got flung on the shelf that’s above and to the left of my lathe and on my other workbench about 5 feet in front of the lathe. It was a huge mess.
