Bert asked me to post a table for my new drill press when I built one.

Well, here it is…………..quick and dirty.

Too many other things to do besides build heirloom shop furniture and fixins’

I have always liked the slide in – slide out inserts.

I can swap ends.

I can move it in or out for a clean piece to drill into

And I finished off the piece of MDF by making more inserts than I will ever need.

Very nice, I just started laying out a new drill press table with drawers underneath. I am going to scrap the removable square and replace it with the sliding insert.
