I just completed this drill press table. It is the same basic plan that was posted on Stevinmarin’s blog except I added a small cleat on each end of the fence so it will stay fairly straight on the table. I will be putting a couple of coats of polyurathane on it for a little protection and so the fence and the replaceable inserts can move smoothly.

Very nice. I need to make one of those myself. I’ll have to put this on my “todo” list.

Glen;

Very nice table. I really like your idea of cleats on end of your fence. I am building table for my Ridgid Drill Press and thought about embedding a piece of T-track into ends of table and installing a piece of aluminum angle with T-bolts onto ends of my fence to keep it reasonably square. Will take some pics when it is completed.

Cool

Good work Glen – I really like the simplicity of this design. I may have to rip off your ideas and set something up on my drill press! My busted up old table is a 5-minute-thrown-together clamp-on affair. Thanks for posting.

Good working fence with replaceable parts.

Nice table. I’m working on my own right now (when I am not on LJ).

The idea of cleats at the end of the fence to help keep the fence square in interesting. I need to consider that.
