Quick and Easy Drill Press Table
A drill press is a staple in the shop. Upgrade yours with this quick and easy drill press table.
The tables that come with most drill presses might be fine for metalworking. But for woodworking, they just don’t cut it. To start with, they’re usually way too small. The only provision for attaching a fence is a few diagonal slots in the table, which makes adjusting the fence a chore. And even though most drill press tables have a small hole in the center for drill bit clearance, the hole isn’t usually large enough to accommodate sanding drums or really big bits. So what’s the solution? Building your own table.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
