Super-fancy drill press table! That will be your pride and joy for many years, I think. Very nice looking shop, too.

Now that’s a drill press tabletop! Very nice I will need to steal this design.

Every time I use my drill press I tell myself I need to make a table for it so I don’t have to rely on the tiny one it came with. I will definitely bookmark this project for inspiration when I finally get around to building one!

The elevation handle challange is delt with by being able to flip the fencr do that the shorter bottom side becomes the upright side and the higher upright side becomes the bottom side, just drilled two holes in each side so I could change it. See pic

This was taken before I finished the project.
