This is a custom drill press table I made, which was inspired by one that appeared in Woodsmith magazine. My table features a small accessory drawer. Behind the drawer is a sealed dust collection chamber. The dust collector attaches in the rear through a Rockler “Tool Gate” blast gate. It has a removable insert to prevent tearout in the back of your workpiece. Stop blocks on the fence help with repeated drilling.
I cut a relief in the back of the fence for clearance. This way I can still drill about 7” from the edge of a workpiece with my Ridgid 15” drill press.
