I just finished this table for my Delta 16.5” drill press. Nothing new really, but it’s mine so I wanted to share it.
I built it out of more of the scrap alder plywood, edged with Southern Yellow Pine and finished with satin Polycrylic. I’m not sure how I’ll like working off of that, but we’ll see! Rather than spending money on t-track, I just cut the grooves like I’ve seen other LJ’rs do. Seems to slide pretty well so far. It’s held to the drill table by a bar and two wooden knobs that I made, as is the fence. The fence is just two pieces of ply glued together and drilled for some carriage bolts.
The only thing I’ll add later on will be some stop blocks.
This is a huge improvement over the tiny little round metal table!
