Here’s the really simple table and fence I made for my drill press. The material is 3/4 inch MDO which I can find at my locat lumber yard. It’s bolted to the metal table with 4 flat head bolts recessed into the MDO. The adjustment is by way of T-bolts that ride in a channel I milled with a 3/8 straight bit and then the bit pictured which does a really neat job. The dimensions are 34” long by 14” deep which came from stock I had on hand. I didn’t bother with special stop blocks as it is trivial to clamp a block to the fence. There’s no finish but the paper surface is quite durable. I broke the corners with a round over bit.

Wow that’s a long one. I’m in the process of making one myself but not that big. BZ

That’s one wide table : ) I don’t have three feet of air space to spare in my shop….do you make something on a regular basis that requires a table that wide ? Nice T-slot bit : )

Fortunately, I’ve got enough space but I do not make anything on a regular basis that requires this width. I had the material on hand, had the room and felt that bigger might be better. I could always reduce the width but I find that it is very handy as it is.

Hahaha , I think it would quickly become another flat surface to “temporarily”store things on in my shop : )
Nice job using up leftover materials .
