I always have difficulties in drilling holes at the edges.
Boards can be moved left and right, and the depth of drilling down and backwards
Height adjustment is by raising and lowering the work unit (last 2 pic)

As work progresses, I add there some parts to hold town the workpiece
Also something to make easier measuring and adjusting
Those parts i want to add later because then I but those exactly like they are comfortable to use.

First peaces I tried to drill and those are 10+ so this table is working.

Very cool!

Where there is a will…...........

This takes up way too much space for my garage, but if you have the need this is a great solution!

I used Ball Bearing Drawer Slides. I do not worry about the dust. I clean the slides with air during drilling. and if there is problem with slides it is easy to change those, also they are very cheap.
