A drill press Is I think a great addition to any woodshop. But to make it even more useful a drill press table is easy to build, and comes in handy in the shop. I made mine from MDF but birch plywood would be a good choice to. And a drill press table isn’t complete without a solid fence that’s adjustable. And replaceable insert prevent you drilling into the top of your table. Those are just a few features that are really handy to have on a drill press but there also a lot of different ways you could build your own. The T-tracks in the table are what the fence is adjusted by, but you can also use the T-tracks for hold-down clamps and other accessories. I also cut a angle on the base of the fence, and the fence to cut of the sharp corners and make it look nicer. The bevel is about 60 degrees. And a few star-knobs secure the fence in place.
