What works for me.......

(click on any image to enlarge)

      Over head control box makes for easy and  safe access. 

The toolrack is also within easy reach from the front of the lathe

The articulated arm lights  were purchased at flea markets.

Custom bowl rests from BestWoodTools

.

The Poolewood's swiveling headstock makes it easy to

reach the inside of hollowforms without having to lean over the lathe bed.

A plastic container fitted with a 4" PVC pipe flange works well as a dust collector.
