I buy this drill and I want to offer a gift : a drill press table
I have a piece of plywood and I want to optimize it
So I calculate how I can built a drill press table

I’m happy because I have only 3 scraps ( 5cm x 7cm) I will use them in the future for stop blocks

I must use a piece of pine to finish the project but the piece of pine is for “the final touch!!”

Thanks for looking

Nice and useful table Jack. Every dill press needs one for woodworking. Does you fence can move at an angle or only parallel to the front end ?

By the way, it’s a nice tool too !

Hello Thanks to all

To Serge : the fence can move at different angles
To Bambi : a drill press table is really necessary

Nicely done. You’ll like that larger table.

Nice drill press, but even nicer table.
Best thoughts,
