After seeing so many great drill press tables on this site I decided it was time to make my own.
Using some scrap ply and a bit of random aussie hard wood I made the following table.
So far it has been great! I should have done this ages ago

That will make a big difference in how you use the drill press. I never understood those tiny tables they come with.

I need to make something similar. I think the t-tracks will make the table very adaptable. Pretty fancy looking trip for a drill press. Doubt I can match that (grin).

Looks great! Nice wood used on the trim and fence.

Well done. How did you attach it?

There are two layers of 3/4 inch ply for the main table. This allowed me to drill holes through one of the layers and insert bolts before gluing the two layers together. The bolts are then attached to the original small metal table that came with the drill press.
