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.

Ever wondered what wood turning is all about? Here are some invaluable information on how to make beautiful items out of wood! That one little strategy from A Course In Wood Turning that I implemented not only worked, but the results were completely astonishing. I had never seen anything like it! Now, keep in mind that I had tried a lot of other products up until this point. You name it, I probably tried it! That’s how desperate I was to improve my skills with wood turning.
