Decided to reduce the pile of off cut plywood that had been steadily growing in my shop. This drill press table is built from plans I downloaded from I like the design because it’s not complicated, but adds functional storage for my drill bits, attachments etc…I still need to make the fence, which will also have a t-track with a sliding stop. All in all, it was a quick and fun build that will come in handy as I look towards other projects I want to tackle… thanks for looking!

Great storage cabinet, you’ll get lots of use from that table over the years.

Looks nice….how do you adjust the table up and down. It looks like the table might interfere with the crank.

Ivan...yes, the drawers are smallish, but they do hold all the stuff I have and need at the drill press. Redoak49…Based on the cabinet height and where it sits on the standard drill press table, the crank does not interfere with the table. That said, I still need to get the drillpress on a mobile base, which will make acessing the crank a bit easier…Thanks for your comments!
