This is the drill press table I built for my Porter Cable Drill Press. The top is melamine with two long t-tracks for hold-downs, and two for the fence, beneath that is a 3/4” plywood clamped to the metal table. The fence is a r*ckler router table fence I purchased on clearance. I notched out the thin piece of aluminum in the back so that the fence can slide much farther back, around the post of the drill press. This fence also lets me run a flexible dust collection hose right behind the fence to suck up the shavings. Since these pictures I’ve added a sacrificial block to the center and a piano hinge to the front, in case I need to drill some compound angles (the PC drill press table could already tilt sideways). The combo works pretty well. I cobbled a delta mortising attachment (also found on clearance) to the drill press and it makes good square holes. Someday, when I get around to it, I will probably upgrade the top and add some more t-track. Thanks.
