This is my most recent project.
I ordered the plans from WOOD. They sell plans for several different drill press tables, and they call this one the “Feature-Packed Drill Press Table”.
WOOD has teamed up with Schlabaugh and Sons to offer all of the hardware for this in a kit. I couldn’t find the kit on Schlabaugh’s website, but when I called them they knew just what I wanted. I paid a little extra for the convenience of getting the hardware all at once, but I don’t keep t-track or knobs in the shop, so it was worth it for me.
Like most drill presses, mine (a Delta benchtop model) came with a small metal table, so adding this is a big benefit. I used to just have a piece of plywood clamped to the table, but that didn’t offer a fence or any hold downs.
The only modification I made to the plans was using oak banding around the edges of the table.
