Subject:
One side of the Lathe, or both?

>I read some interesting things in the post about containing shavings and such. Something that really piqued my interest was that many posters said their lathe was next to a wall. I think that would mean they have to do all their turning from one side of the lathe.
I don't think I have ever completed a bowl, vase, or hollowform while turning from only one side of the lathe. Spindles, maybe, but nothing else. So... my question is this:
Do you turn from just one side of the lathe... or from both sides?
Just curious... thanks in advance...
