I threw this table together to hold the centering jig. Since I do alot of pens, I wanted to be able to have a “to drill” stack on one side and a “drilled” stack on the other side. Plus, the table catches all the “drill-do” so I can take and dump it all in the “can” at one time.
I put three mag switches on it so I could center it easily and the turn the mags on instead of wrestling clamps and losing the center.
I used 3/4” birch ply as a base and wrapped it in 1 1/2” cherrry so there’d be a fence and the pen blanks wouldn’t wander off while I was drilling. Then, I used a 1/8” roundover bit in a pony router to ease the edges and inside the holes for the mags.
Quick sanding, finished it in Watco. Looks nice and smells real good. It was nice play time and functional build at the same time. And, I started and finished a project in the same day – a rare occasion…..
