I made this drill press table jig a couple of years ago, and it meets with my approval with a four star rating out of five. It will do ever thing other drill press tables will do, plus I am able to end drill long pieces of stock material, example, to end drill to add a dowel. The jig moves horizontal on the drill press table via a t track on the bottom of the jig, attached to the drill press table. One improvement that could be made would be to install a T track on the fence with stops. I made the centre wooden piece of the table replaceable due to drilling through material into the jig, but I use scrape material to drill into. I got these plans from the wood store. THANKS GREG.

I too really like the end drilling capability. I have been looking at every drill press table I can find to see what I want on mine when I make it. That feature is a must. Thanks for sharing!

I have a DP jig table like that. You’re right, they’re nice.

Nice work. I like it. I need to add a modification to drill down end grain to make through bolts for single shot stocks ;-) Looks like it would work very well.

Wonderful table, and what a wonderful drillpress.
I made one my self and have used the side mount several times.
Here a link for a vacum hose mount I made:

An additional dimension of usefulness with the end grain drilling side mount. I like it!
