Here is my drill press table that I made not too long ago. Also pictured are some shop made hold down clamps. The table top is made from a piece of kitchen counter material, with some added Wood River t-track, from Woodcraft. The hold downs are made from 1×1/4” aluminum bar I picked up from Lowe’s, then cut to about 5 1/2” long and bent to my liking. After they were bent, I drilled a 5/16” hole in the middle of the bend, then triple dipped both ends in plasti-dip. They hold very well, without slipping at all, and do not harm the wood that I can tell. I also made the knobs out of some scrap 2×4” I had laying around, and pressing a 1/4” – 20 nut in a snug drilled countersink hole.
