My new Jet drill press needed storage. I added a Woodpeckers table that is mounted with toggle clamps instead of screws. This makes it much easier to take on and off. The storage cabinet underneath is from Woodsmith with modifications to fit my drill press. It is made from 18 mm Baltic birch and is on casters. It is really great having bits and accessories right at hand.

Your cabinet is a great addition to the shop. That looks like a mighty fine drill press! I, too, used the Woodsmith idea and made some alterations. I wish I had made mine years ago because I certainly do like the convenience of having all my drilling needs in one place.

Lee – the model is JDP-17 a 17” model. After 10 years with a 10” Ryobi it sure is sweet.
L/W – nice stand of yours. You certainly have more storage

All – thanks for the nice comments

I’ve been pondering one of those for years, basically a rolling cabinet with a dedicated parking spot.
I think I’ll also ‘borrow’ your idea with the toggle clamps, both are excellent DP upgrades!

Very nice. These plans have been sitting on my workbench for months. Your success and finished project has inspired me to get moving.
Well done.

Very nice setup and I like your mods to the cabinet. The factory table looks like it is a nice size to start with.
