Earlier this winter while snowed in, I made a drill press table for my table top Ryobi drill press and then a mobile base for the drill press as well. All made from scraps laying around the shop – drill press table = 2 pieces of 3/4” plywood glued together and some oak strips around the front and sides. The only thing I had to purchase was the T-track from Rockler and the casters which I purchased on sale from Woodcraft.
The mobile base is 3/4” plywood, with the top made from leftover oak stair tread as well as some of the drawer front. The other drawer fronts are maple from various projects.
In the 10 drawers, I have some of my corded and cordless drills, drill bit sets, chucks and holds, forstner bits, masonry bits, spade bits, step bits, various specialty bits, etc.

Nice work, having it organized and ready for use always makes projects easier to focus on.

That is a wonderful shop built drill press table and will be a great addition to your shop.

Nice job. I just built a mobile base for my drill press to although it’s nowhere as nice as yours!

Great work. The only thing wrong with it I see is it’s not in my shop.
