The table itself is not an original Credit goes to all the LJ’s who have built one, Stumpy Nubbs ingineuity, and Steve Ramsy who posted their versions on YouTube.

My thanks to A1Jim for his support and all the LJ’s who answered my forum topics while Murphy guided me through this project. teaching me patience, practice and precision.

I did a blog of the process in which Murphy took charge. therefore he gets the credit for execution.

I looked at commercial tables and they might not have attached easily to my Drill press, and They lacked the features I wanted.

See my blog for details if you are interested in being educated by Murphy. LOL

This is the last of the projects I’ve been working on. Will be posting my Resawing Jigs later.

As always your comments, criticisms, and witticisms are always welcome. LOL

Come on Tom, you obviously have no intention of using your Drill Press, one scratch on that, and you would start crying…I know I would :)

Great looking drill press table. I like all the stops and holds downs you’ve added. It look so nice you could move your drill press into the dining room!

Congrats on your TD3 Thomas, well deserved Drill Press table and I like it, actually I like it way better then my cheapy HF table and after seeing what you have made, I think I’m going to make it a soon future project.

Nice functional looking table. Murphy should not be allowed to use it.

Tom, this idea of a tunnel with holes as dust catchers is great (or what didn’t I think of that !)
Nice build buddy. Thanks for sharing.

Best,

Serge
