I got the idea for this from Busy Dads Workshop..where there is a YouTube video of his Drill Press Workstation.
I liked the combination of mounting a bench drill press, storage, and a “docking area” where different devices can be used and secured using toggle clamps.
The workstation is buit with 3/4” birch plywood, and the design is in keeping with my other shop furniture.
I made a couple of blanks for the docking area, and will be able to secure a bench grinder, pocket hole jig, sharpening tools, or anything else I come up with…or just leave a blank in place for counter space.

Man that is a great looking drill press station! One of the nicest I’ve seen!

I like how you set the top up to accept interchangeable tools—efficient use of your space.
