Woodturning produces a considerable amount of waste shavings and chips, causing things you put on the lathe bed to disappear. A plywood tray at the right-hand end of the lathe bed will hold calipers, gauges and tools away from most of the clutter.

How the tray is attached to the bed depends on the design of the lathe, but it should be removable in the event you need to move the tail-stock to the far end of the bed.

A refinement is a plywood lid, hinged at the back. If you arrange the hinges so the lid tilts back slightly when open, it becomes a place to clip drawings or notes so you can see them while turning.
