Here is my new drill press table, based on the plans from Woodsmith. The table is 18×24 with a 1 5/8” hardmaple fence. Its not completed yet – Still need to secure it to the stock table, and build a small pull out for bit storage, but its close enough to use, clamped to the table. I didn’t have any large enough pieces of plywood for the 18×24 footprint, so I glued two pieces together on edge and sandwiched them between sheets of hardboard. Hopefully this doesn’t come back and bite me in the rear. Time will tell I guess. The small box on the bottom helps raise the table high enough so that the crank arm can operate without hitting the table, and adds a dust port below for sanding. Third picture is what I had been using up to this point….as you can see, this upgrade was sorely needed.
Thanks for looking and take care!
