Here is my take on a drill press table. Two layers of 5/8” fibreboard and a hardboard on top to make the t-tracks. The T-bolts are home made of carriage bolts, ground off. Knobs made out of scrap plywood. I drilled the hole and pulled the nuts in tight, then epoxied them in. I made inserts with different hole sizes to use with sanding drums. It also has a vacuum attachment. I gave everything a couple of coats of BLO. I was inspired by the several drill press projects posted here. Thanks to all LJ’s who posted.

Kevin, to tell you the truth I haven’t tried it yet. When I built it, at one point in time I wanted to make the dust collector as a table top attachment, to use it only while sanding, but I then I opted for this version. I’ll see. I can always modify it.
This project pretty much concludes my woodworking season. It’s getting hot around here and my garage is like a sauna.

Occie, I like your signature.
