This is my drill press table I have made. I have stolen many ideas from many of you that have posted tables here. It is however a pretty basic table. I do have to say the center insert is by far the best design I have incorporated into this table. I can rotate it four times on one side to give me a fresh drill spot whenever I need. I also incorporated two aluminum rulers on the side to make it easier to adjust my fence. This table is made for 3/4 MDF because I wasn’t sure I was going to like it when I was making it. It has served me great and I have to say I don’t think I would change anything about the table I have made for myself. Thanks for looking and enjoy. Tim

Did you seal the MDF with anything to keep moisture out ?
Looks like a nice functional table : )

I forgot to mention the bit holder. I just made this the other day and am not sure if I really like it or not. So far it has served its purpose.

I did not seal the MDF but have not had any problems yet with it. I do live in arizona and they say its a dry heat…... I probably should do something with it since I like the way the table has served me so far.

I couldn’t get away with that here in Massachusetts for very long : )

Very Nice. A good table really does come in handy… I did one very similar, but I forgot the center insert after telling myself not to forget… duh, I took a coffee break… and forgot. Never got around to redoing. I like your side rulers, another bit of convenience.

My three drill index boxes fit in the drawer… along with hold downs for the T slots. I can now find most of what I need including the chuck key.

Al I like the drawer on your drill press table. I wish I would have made mine a little deeper. I may in the furture when the table warps or I need to improve on it. Untill then I will leave mine alone.
