I built a new table for my drill press to go along with the rolling cabinet I am in the process of building.

More details of this table build available in my LJ blog.

Hope you like it.

Thanks.

I drilled a 2 inch hole in an insert I made and the saw dust was sucked out nicely. I made several more replacement insert blanks out of 1/2 inch mdf.

Working on drawers for the rolling cabinet today.

Was gonna ask why the long slotted holes in the side pieces? But then I looked at the picture series…. never mind. :-)
Neat idea!

Wow, i’ve been using the stock table and clamping/praying for far too long. This table just got expedited in the project list – I’ve got everything I need in scrap piles except for the T-track. Nice post!
