Woodturner Upgrades His Workshop

I have been planning on getting a better lathe for about a year now and with a nice tax return, I am able to finally upgrade. I bought a Rikon Wood Fast 70-500 with a 20″ swing and a 2 hp motor. I chose this lathe over the rest because of how much you get for the price, all the adapters and rest sizes are common as opposed to say a Oneway in which you have to have two sets of everything if you have two lathes…

I like the rolling stand he made for his tools, just might copy some of that as I am in the process of reorganizing my shop.
