Well, its not the best one on Lumberjocks (might actually be the worst) but it was my first build so I thought I’d post it. Maybe down the line my other projects will show that I’ve improved some how. This was a very cheap build.
My current workshop is only 1/4th of a two car garage. With 3 kids, a wife that likes to park her car in the garage, and it being winter out, the workshop seems even smaller. I am on a mission to start getting stuff up off the floor but that means moving stuff off my primary work bench with currently has a band saw, a HF stationary sander, and a DP.
My father (for most of my friends that know me always ask “are you sure you are his son”) because he’s pretty handy with tools and electric and I’m well…better at fixing computers… donated to me his 12” Delta DP to me. I was like, WOOHOO..a nice new shiny toy (well, a little bit of rust). Anyway, I found a person that was throwing out an old functional cabinet and thought…DP stand!!!!
So I used a jigsaw and cut up some 3/4” MDF squares I had lying around, added them to the top and bottom, threw on 4 casters and walaaa….
Next I am exploring ideas for a drill press table. Because I have a 12” DP and most of the designs out there are suited for 8-10” DPs, I am having to pay close attention.
Anyway, thanks for stopping by. Any tips are always welcome. I am the very definition of Newbie!!!
