The latest addition to the shop has been a drill press. I needed someplace to put it which had storage space and was movable. This is my solution.
3/4 plywood and a 1/2 inch plywood back and drawer boxes. The top is covered with hardboard which is not attached. It fits tight in the band around it so that it won’t come out. Using a shopvac you can lift it if it ever needs replaced.
Also, the edge band around the top is held up about 1/16 above the top of the hard board. That way drill bits won’t roll off into the floor.
The drawer pulls were made in the shop from stock found in my father-in-law’s shop after he passed away.
If I had it to do over I would have done 5 drawers instead of 4. My being a cheapskate means I have drawers that are too deep for small things and not deep enough for big things.
