Mine really isn't worth posting after you've seen what Scott has haha. I have an 8' x 2' table with a cheap hand wrapper, an office chair, and an LED office lamp which is a must if you ask me.

I wrapped for years with a hand wrapper and all my gear in a 10 gal plastic tote.  I would have to use the dinner table to have enough flat space to work a rod.

That's what I did for a couple of years while trying to decide if this was something I truly wanted to pursue. Except for the bucket. I used a cardboard box, reinforced with duct tape, which was also my rod stand for hand wrapping.

We aquired a cabin on the lake when my wife's older brother passed away. Spent quite a bit of cash getting it into reasonable condition. The north end is the a-frame section you see. There's an identical section on the south end, which is now a small kitchen. A fifteen foot square room separates the two a-frame, with a second floor the same size accessed by the narrowest spiral staircase I've ever seen. I have to go up sideways. The whole thing is about 600 square feet.

Not very big, But big enough for me. Lee, like I told my wife, I hope I haven't built my own doghouse. I haven't had to sleep there yet. LOL.

I'd look long term to move the lathe out of the wrapping area. The dust is just too hard to stay On top of

Exactly. My lathe is 40' from my wrapping bench and I can't apply finish for about a week after turning a grip. In the process of building a dirty room for the lathe, drill press, saws and assembly bench.

Wish I could, but I don't have the space. It a case of there, or nowhere. A box fan with a furnace filter taped on clears the air in less than a day after cork sanding. Bugs are a worse problem than cork dust for me.

If I put my lathe 40' from my wrapping bench, I'd have a variety of problems. To the north would put it in my neighbor's garage. South, in an overgrown empty lot. West, in the road. East, in the lake. I don't think any of those locations are gonna work for me. LOL
