Lathe bench

I'm thinking ahead now. I'm going to need somewhere to put my lathe when it's done, and given that it's going to be bigger and heavier than Gingery's lathe, moving it around will not be an option. I've drawn this bench up, it's made of 25mm box section painted RHS, welded together. The small box shaped cavity in the top left corner will house the motor at the back, and have a little cupboard or drawer or something at the front. It's a metre long, so I mah have to shorten my lathe a bit, I'm planning on a 1m bed at the moment... we'll see.
