Looks good Dudley. Sometimes “nothing special” is what’s best.

I’m in the process, right now, of making a drill press table. On this website I have been able to see lots of examples with lots of different ideas on drill press tables, including this one. This is the first one I have seen with 2 T-tracks going across the table and, in effect, a second fence that is perpendicular to the primary fence. That is an interesting idea. Thank you.

As an FYI for anyone else thinking about drill press tables, an article in the January, 2006 edition of Fine Woodworking provides great advice on drill press tables and drill presses in general.

Looks good to me! The X/Y axis slots are interesting… Most of the time stop blocks I see mounted to T track in the fence…

The replaceable insert is a great touch too… Seems like this will do what you want it to do for a long time. You got a winner there!
