New drill press=new drill press table. The table itself is 24” wide, and 15” deep. It is two 3/4 ply, flat glued with Gorilla Glue, and a 1/4 MDF top. MDF inserts the depth of the table,(it was easier to do it this way). Attached to the drill press table with four bolts and hardwood blocks underneath. The bolts and new table were secured before the 1/4 MDF. The MDF is only brad nailed to facilitate removal of the bolts, and replacement.

Very nice. It is hard to tell from the photo, but did you create an insert for the area below the drill.

Yep. Insert below the head. T-track on the top of the fence.

Nice table, simple and to the point. I’m about to build one myself. What dimensions did you settle on and how did you choose mount it?

Thanks!
