After a week of fleeting moments in the shop I have finally finished the drill press cart and I have to say that it looks awesome and even more importantly that that it makes more room and floor space available in that ugly corner of my shop.

SHOPPING LIST

Full sheet of 3/4” birch plywood (not baltic birch)
A half sheet of 1/4” plywood
I purchased some ash hardwood to use for the table top edge banding and I also used the leftovers to make my own drawer pulls that I am very happy about.
3” casters @4
22” full extension drawer slides @5
Finished it in polycrylic.

JOINERY

Since this was a shop project I didn’t use any fancy joinery for the case I simply used pocket holes and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws to join the case parts together along with glue.

FEATURES

5 full extension drawers which gives me ton of stroage
34” x 22” x 16”
The whole cart is portable which in my opinion is a must in any wood-shop.
I made my own drawer pulls out of ash which was a very fun project.

Anyway thanks for checking it out .

This is a fine drill press table and will be a great addition to your shop.

Nice project and I’m glad to see the casters you used, those orange beautys work great and the brake is out standing from home Depot.

I have a WEN drill press, that may be the same model as yours. I will be adding a table to it soon, but I don’t know what to do about the crank (that moves the table up and down). The handle rotates through the space behind and above the existing table, beside the column. If you add a large table like yours, and mount it so that the back is next to the column, you won’t be able to turn the crank. (I hope that made sense. It would be easier to explain if I could use my hands to gesture.)

Do you have a different model, with the crank out of the way? Or did you figure out how to deal with it? All I can come up with is to cut a chunk out of the table above the handle, beside the column.

I know exactly what your taking about although my solution is not ideal it works .. I screwed the handle off the drill press and basically used a bolt that is shorter of the handle the picture below shows it
