Yet another drill press table. I designed this one with dust collection, something that I don’t see in a lot of tables. The dust hole is sized to fit a 2-1/4” ShopVac Hose attachment. The inserts are off center so that you can rotate them 90 degrees if it gets chewed up or you flip it over and use the other side. There’s a “shelf” under the back that keeps the blanks out of the way but handy.
There’s a hole for a drawer that I don’t have time to get to at the moment. The opening is 10-1/2×4 x 7-3/4 so I should get a nice size drawer to fit in there that should yield a good place to collect more junk. The fence is the prototype EB3 Aux fence that I made a while back.
I’m surprised by how well the dust collection works. When I hookup the DC to the table, it sucks the insert down into the table making it virtually impossible to remove. I also tested it DC with the rotary drum sander installed. Best thing since sliced bread.
Table Top: 16×32 x 1” (2 layers of 12mm BB Ply)
Base: 12×16 x 4 (19mm BB Ply)
