Thanks to everyone who posted info and pics of drill press tables. I took a little info from a lot of different posts. Still have to do t track and a fence. 1/2” plywood base, sides. 3/4” plywood top. Walnut drawer face. I went with a circular sacrificial center to get more out of it. Also the first time I attempted half blind dovetails.

The dovetails turned out great! But couldn’t you have done through dovetails with same effect because of the false front?

How does your circular sacrificial center work. Is it locked in while in use? How do you replace?

Good job turned out great. I need to build a stand for my drill press, but keep finding other things I need to build first. Lol

-- Thank You Trevor OBrion

there is no real reason for the dovetails being half blind. I was trying out a dovetail jig that I bought and the half blind is just the first joint covered in the instructions.
The circular piece is off center of the bit. So the bit drills into the front half of the piece. Mine just sits in there. So I can spin it easy by using a stick or screwdriver. And when it needs replaced I can just pick it up out and replace. I haven’t found a need to lock it in yet. So far it works fine just sitting there.

Thanks for taking a look.

Nice dovetails! Should be a very functional addition to your drill press.
