I decided to make a drill press table, and was intrigued by Stumpy Nub's design, so here is what I came up with. Turns out I like it a lot! More pictures and build commentary here.

Thanks, Stumpy!

Wow. When tools become furniture. Took a min to see the color. Nice work, love the wheels.

Fantastic job on the build! I also was impressed with the “build blog”. Thanks for doing such a great job explaining, in detail, the build!!!

I will be building the “Stumpy Drill IMpress Table”, in what I hope is the not tooooooo distant future. You have inspired me to “go for it” and not skimp on the features!!!

Nice work there Rev,

Looks great, BUT; have you checked the table for deflection? Cast iron tables will deflect if you put enough weight on it. If you do find any deflection, you can fix that by propping up the table with an adjustable prop or jack. On my DP, I can press down on the table with around 10# of force and get a deflection of a few thousands, maybe .005”. This may seem small, but it is good to keep in mind that cast iron is not as strong as you think.

Looks way better than Stumpy’s! Maybe we should tell him a bit about marquetry, carving and painting ;)
Oh, and I’m definitely copying the wheels design! :)
