Just finished my drillpress table. Actually it was on my old drillpress but had to modify it to fit my new 17” general international. It is made of maple. The slots that are for the hold downs have t-slots in the back that hold the nuts and slide back and forth for easy setup. The fence has t-slots in it for the stop blocks. Stop blocks are from kreg jigs.

Fence hooks onto the top from the sides. Used to have t-slots in table top a few years back but found the t-slots would fill up with sawdust and it would get packed in there pretty good after a while. Changed to this method and like it allot more.

I haven’t put finish on it yet but will put water based satin on it. It is easy to apply and clean up.
