As I blogged, I built myself a drill press table. Mostly MDF, Laminate, lots of T-Track, and some Sipo banding to fancy it up.

Nice drillpress table Jon. I just bought some small drum sanders ( I think that’s the right word) to use in the drill press and I could sure use a table like yours with hole in it to sink the sanding drum into. Thanks for the inspiration!

Anyone know a decently affordable place to buy t-track and accessories? I know you can b uy it all over the place, but anyone found a really good price?

I’ve seen some elaborate DP tables, never quite saw the need for them. The straight forward design (such as yours) has never left me wanting. I have the same table more or less. A couple clamping jigs nearby have always made it work. The insert is a must. Didn’t do one in mine for a long time. A vac port (don’t have one in mine) is something I’ve wanted to add. The only other feature I’ve wanted to add was a T-track to one of the horizontal sides to help hold things vertically. Well done.

Jon, this is a wonderful addition to your shop. I really like the intersecting tracks that you put into it and the replaceable insert is an interesting addition as well.
