There were quite a few in Fine Woodworking articles
over the years. Some of them were most impressive.

You can get CD/DVD archives of FWW articles. There’s
also a book, “Making and Modifying Machines”.

While I have no interest in building a wood lathe some different approaches. Of course there is more info available if you look.
