After buying a new to me Delta floor drill press, I wanted to make it more functional by adding a drill press table. Not having a lot of spare time during hunting season, it also needed to be quick to make. Here is what I came up with.
Started with a 3/4in plywood base and added some Kreg Mini-Trak. To make it a quicker build, instead of cutting dadoes, I layered in some 1/2in plywood between the track pieces. The track is slightly lower than the plywood, but it works just fine that way. An additional time-saving device was to use aluminum angle for the fence and add a plywood face, rather than build a complete fence from scratch. A couple Kreg Trak-Klamps and another piece of track on top of the fence to finish it off. Small total investment and less than an hour of build time.
Thanks for looking.
