I decided to build a drill press table even though I don’t really need one right now and there are so many other things I “need” to build like a miter station, out feed table, super sled, sliding peg board, taper jig, all things I need to have when I start our Walnut bedroom set next year. Since I thought this would be a 45 minute build I decided to knock it out over the weekend when my wife was messing around on something around the house. There is a reason I’m posting this on a Monday night, lets just say I had to make multiple trips to HD for different sizes of hardware and such to make it, i think i spent more time designing it in my head while I was building to make sure it was functional.

I went with the Kreg system b/c I plan to use the same system on my miter station fence and on my super sled I plan to build in the near future, this way I can use the same 2 stops on all of them. I’m planning for future builds, hopefully this will work.

I plan on making my inserts after I buy the Ridgid Oscillating Spindle Sander for my birthday Jan. 5th. This way I can round over the edges easier on the belt sander, i wasn’t even going to attempt it by hand with a jigsaw.

Very nice job. I built one similar for my new drill press, but on a smaller scale. I have a metal sliding fence on it, but not the fancy Kreg fence like yours. I’m sure you’ll enjoy your new attachment.. Happy drilling.

Lance well done on your new table. Look great, are you going to put the tape measure on the top pf the fence? I like the Kreg set up. I looked at the 18” Delta Drill press yesterday trying to decide what one to get. Hope all is well Have a great X-mas!
