Super design and workmanship. Your timing is dead-on. I’m starting mine today. I have other examples but your’s is special indeed. I like how you extended the tracks beyond the table at the back. I would have missed that. Can you give us your dimensions, width & lenght? Excellent description BTW. Thanks for sharing.

Tyka, the dimensions:
Fence is 24” to match the Incra t-track plus. It’s 3” in height, and the depth is the thickness of 2 pieces of 3/4” ply laminated. So, approximately 1.5” The fence has 3/4” hard maple on the top, bottom, and sides. Therefore, the plywood portion is only the middle.
Tabletop is 22” wide and 13” deep. The fence extends one inch on either side. The t-tracks in the back of the top extend an inch beyond the depth. The thickness of the top is that same 3/4” ply topped with the 1/4” hardboard.
The base assembly matches the dimension of the table that came with the drill press.
Blank for the drill plate insert is 4” wide. The maple defining the insert area is 1/2” wide and 1/2” deep. The blank is then 3” square. I considered created the blank in an offset posiition so that as you drill you’re actually drilling in the back of the center. This way the blank can be rotated to be reused. However, it’s 1/2 mdf. It takes less than a minute to create a new one.
The only implementation I’ve yet to use for this table is to install a removable drawer slide that slides from the bottom of the table to hold the blanks and the keychuck and some commonly used bits. It would be very small. I couldn’t use a standard drawer slide there as it would block the t-knobs holding the table to the machine. That’s why I’d use the box without a top to slide into the bottom with some cleats of some sort.
Thanks for your comments. Glad this gives some good ideas. It really is a pleasure to use.

Your post was very timely. I was just in the process of designing a new table for my drill press. I’ll have to study this carefully. Looks vert well done and thought ou.
