Here is my Drill Press Table I completed on Memorial day. It’s from Shop Notes 94, although the drawer is from a previous Shop Notes Press, issue 22 or something. Table is 2 layers of 3/4 project plywood, laminated with plastic laminate/formica counter top material. Fence is two 1/2” layers of Burch Ply laminated on each side with 1/4” hardboard, and the fence base is 5/4 Hickory. Drawer and dust collection bay, which is behind the drawer, are made from 1/2” birch ply. Table and Fence both have Rockler T-track, which enables hold downs and various types of clamps. Table has four cutouts that allow bar clamps to slide up and through, and clamp work pieces to the table. The Fence has a gap in the middle, which lines up with a 1 1/2” wide channel cut into the bottom of the hickory fence base to allow for dust collection, which runs through the back of the drawer. The insert is 1/2” MDF and is replaceable and interchangeable for use with sanding drums etc. Now, if only my drill press looked half as good as the table… Hope you enjoy this and it inspires you to build a better one and share it with all of us!!!
