I have fastened clear plastic sheets (overlapped by an inch and taped together) from the ceiling down to within one inch of the floor behind my lathe. This stops chips and shavings from sticking to the wall behind the lathe. The clear plastic curtain is nearly invisible and therfore not a detractor to the work area around you. If you are going to use spot lights close to your lathe work make sure the lights have plastic covers to prevent the wet shavings from coming in contact with the hot bulbs.
