Hope it works well for you. The one I made is somewhat similar, also a closed shape, and a real frustration when the banjo and tool rest have to be moved to the other wide of the steady.

A trick I picked up I think from John K Jordan is when possible to mount one end of the spindle blank in a four jaw chuck, so that the tail stock doesn't have to exert so much pressure towards the headstock.
