This drill press table is made up of 2 layers of 3/4” MDF laminated with white Formica. I used the blue anodized t-track, hold downs and hardware from Rockler. Finished off the edges with some leftover scraps of Lyptus.
I should have made one of these years ago!!!!

Jerry, this is a fantastic table. I have never understood why manufacturers put out drill presses with tables that are so small. The stock tables are almost useless when it comes to woodworking so a table like this makes sense. But not only is it practical but it also looks good as well. The t-tracks and replaceable insert are nice features as well.

I like it, I had just picked up the MDF this morning to make one for myself.

This is one of those things I keep telling myself I need to make – seeing this one might be enough to get me going. Looks great, and looks extremely useful.
