The idea was to build a drill press table that is easy to take on and off (because i often don’t need one) as well as keeping it simple enough that it wouldn’t take long to build and still serves the purpose I need it for, positioning a workplace for multiply holes in the same location. more information in the video:)

Nice video. I like the way you attached the table to the drill press.

As for the stop blocks in the fence … have you thought about investing in a Rockler T-Slot Cutter Router Bit? You could then put a t-track in your fence and wouldn’t need a T-track. I used mine a lot for just such a purpose.

Now all you need is some dust collection for your drill press.

This is a nice drill press table and will be a great addition to your shop.

Great post. While I didn’t use your design, it gave me the inspiration for modifying the WoodPeckers table I purchased last year. I changed the mounting setup today and at some point will replace the cheap white formica covered particle board as the hardware is what made the WP table worth the price.

I was just given a second drill press with a round table the other day and was thinking about building a table for it. Thank you for the post and the video
