Some projects arise out of a want and others a need. This was a classic need project. I had received a wonderful Delta drill press from my parents at Christmas but no room on my workbench to put it. This was built using white ash and red oak. When building a need item I went with what I had available. For those that read my blog for my baby crib you’ll note the very large quantity of white ash I own. This was a result of a local cabinet shop closing doors and me having the winning bid for the white ash. I also had some red oak plywood left over from a previous project (see toy box project). I must give credit where credit is due and was inspired by TheGravedigger’s project ( Joinery on my project was done using the Kreg pocket system which made for strong and fast made joints. I made sure the table top extended the drawer to keep dust out. The area below will eventually have a shelf to make for better storage. I am also going to consider adding a hard laminate top but remain undecided.

As you can see the top has some guides which will go into the drill press table. But that is a project to be seen later :-)
