I have a bench top drill press with an adjustable table that raises and lowers, tilts, and rotates 360 degrees around the column. I would really like to make a table and fence for it. My question is what is the best way to do so and ensure that everything is square to the bit? As I said my table current rotates 360 degrees and it is also a round table not square. Thanks in advance for the advice.

Your DP should also have a tilt function/adjustment. Between that and your to-be attached DP table, you should be able to set that using nothing more than a square.

FWIW, personally I chose this as my DP table:

IMO, the price is right. And this works great IMO.
