Up grade to my DP table! Storage galore! Made from some 3/4 ply, pine, cherry with walnut pulls, the drawers are all on hickory runners that run in dados. Finished in 3 coats of tung oil. Added another t-track to the table for better clamping capabilities. Just need to add the organizers for the deep drawer & holders for my forstner bits.

Thanks for looking!

Look at all the storage at the finger tip. A bit bulky for my taste, so I put my supplies in a cabinet along side.
Was this inspired by Stumpy?
Great job on this complex piece.

@grumpymike I’m just trying to maximize the space. My bits we’re spread all over. Was going to make rolling cabinet beneath the table but I’m constantly raising & lower the table height. Figured this was better suited, still going to make a cabinet below like an adjustable height outfeed table. Stumpy is a funny guy with some great ideas!

Very nice set up… Was thinking of making a cabinet for mine but now you have me thinking. Did you just attach the box to the existing table? .... Great post.

Beauty. Everything is there, even the removable drill plate. Well done.

Very nice. A drill press does have a lot of accessories that need a home. Nice build.

Great looking table. It seems to be quite a bit of weight on the DP iron table. Please note that iron tables DO deflect when much of a load is placed on them. A dial indicator will show you if you may have excessive deflection. I can pull down on the front of my vintage Delta DP and notice .005” deflection.

Have your say...
