I looked at some other plans online and just kinda winged it with the leftover cuts I had on hand. I got to break my router table’s cherry making the dados for the t-track.
It has two hold downs, an adjustable fence, and a stop block for repeat holes. Its small and sized for benchtop drill press at 18” x 12”, but it sure beats the 8”x8” stock table. It’s held on to the press with T-bolts through the stock table slots and into pinch blocks with knobs, which holds it super tight. and level.
Much to my wife’s dismay, I had to buy a set of forstner bits to counter sink the t-bolt heads :)
I haven’t really decided what I’m going to do about the “drill area” in the center- I know this area is going to get worn out, so I’m thinking about routing it out and making some replaceable inserts to put in there. Thats a little beyond my skill level right now though, so I’ll handle it down the road when the table starts getting worn and I’ve gotten a little better at routing and jig-sawing.
