Easy-To-Build Drill Press Table

In just one weekend, you can transform your drill press into a more versatile woodworking tool.

The drill press is an essential woodworking tool. But the cast iron table found on most drill presses is a reminder that this tool was originally designed for machinists. Fortunately, a few simple modifications can turn a drill press into a precision woodworking machine. The first thing to add is a large worksurface. This makes it easy to work with longer workpieces. And the top should be made from a material that won't damage your drill bits like the cast-iron table can. Another important feature is a fence to keep your workpiece in position when drilling. The one on this table has a straightforward design that's easy to build. This project won't take long to complete, but will surely pay off each time you use your drill press.
