I have finally out grown the small Harbor Freight drill press table I have been using for the last 3 1/2 years. The T-tracks had pulled out due to only having #6-3/8 flat head screws keeping them in. And the MDF was splitting in the middle too. Here is what it looked like.
I had some 3/4 melamine on hand so it was elected to do the job. I cut two sections and glued them together.
Then I squared and re squared the blank to a finished size of 32×15 1/2. Routed the slots for the T-tracks and installed them with #6-1” screws. I them trimmed it in red oak leaving the back open to be able to change the three fences I have ade for the prill press and router tables.
And here we are with two of the aluminum fences, a low one and a taller one. I’m already working on the design for the next generation table to replace this one.
