Here is the Drill Press Table that I just finished this weekend. After attempting to utilize the standard table that comes with my very old Craftsman drill press I ended up resorting to just using a drill quite a bit. I knew that wasn’t the answer, so I looked up every kind of drill press table I could find, and started building this one. It is made up of 2 pieces of 3/4” MDF with a white formica top. There is a 3/4” hard maple border around the entire table and lots of t-track. Overall it didn’t cost me very much either as I had the MDF from leftovers, the intersection kits I got at 1/2 off, the t-track was 66% off and I even got a cracked 4’x8’ sheet of formica at Lowes for over 50% off. The best deal of all had to be the fence which I got at Harbor
Freight randomly for $6.50. I used it tonight to do a bunch of repeat forstner holes and it worked like a charm. Feel free to lay out any comments or questions. Cheers!
