I needed a new table pretty bad so finally put one together. The inspiration came from the one that Steve Ramsey built on wwmm here is a link. I made the fence a little different so I could have a stop block attached. I liked this table because it is pretty simple to build but has a lot of features. The replaceable center is nice to have. Thanks for looking.

Very nice! I like the replaceable center piece. Can’t wait to check it out in a few weeks!

Thanks Tom, Tony, and Ryan. One thing I was missing with the drill press was easy repeatability which I have now. This table is also larger than my old one which is nice. The old table didn’t even have a fence I would just clamp a board down as a fence if I needed it. Thanks for looking guys.
