Woodworking Drill Press Table
An adjustable fence, versatile clamping options, and a built-in dust collection system make this table a great upgrade.
A drill press can deliver precisely placed and perfectly straight holes. But the standard, cast iron table won’t support anything but the smallest workpiece. Then, trying to clamp a workpiece in place can be a frustrating exercise. And you can forget about dust collection. The table and fence system you see here solves all these problems. It turns your drill press into a precision woodworking tool. One of the best features is dust collection. The fence and inserts work together to funnel most of the dust away through a hidden chute. (This is especially handy when using a drum sander.) Clamping a workpiece couldn’t be easier. You can use the T-track to install hold-downs. And the large, open slots in the table make it easy to reach any size workpiece with a standard bar clamp. The final touch is a storage drawer. It’s just one more reason this project is worth building.

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.
