I made this stand for my delta drill press. It’s made out of particle board,and MDF. It has two drawers, the large one holds two tool totes and the top one holds some of my drill bits and other stuff.

I have a stand thats real close to that one. The only thing I don’t like about it is I always forget to push the drawer completely closed and then I have a drawer full of wood chunks .It’ not the stands fault just me….......Schloemoe

This site drives me nuts!!! I can’t blink without seeing another project that I need to attempt. I made a drill bit storage board and now that I have a day off, I guess I should head over to the shop and build a stand with drawers to house the board.

Nice job on the stand.

falegniam the bench top works pretty good but I’m upgrading to a Ridgid floor model drill press in the next month or two. As far as my shop goes theres a 10”table saw, 12”miter saw, router table, 14”band saw, dust collector, and a air compressor rounds out all of my large tools, too many small power and hand tools to list.

sorry about the mumbo jumbo lol, I couldn’t edit it. i was trying to ask if a bench top drill press is suffient for a home shop, or if at some point would I say that “I would need a floor model” someone mentioned that if you bolt a benchtop to the end of a bench of a cabinet like here, you can turn the head over 90 degrees so it clears the bench, or cabinet, and it’s like a floor model. Is this possible, or does the head have to say lined up with the base?
