with a little shop time today i finished the stand for my bench top drill press. its all 3/4 birch ply except for the drawer bottoms they are 1/2 birch ply and the apron around the top is red oak. you might notice that the drill press table is a knock off from steve in marin. the hardest part was the drawer hardware.

thanks for looking

Ahh, I dunno… how much space do you waste on your benchtop with a drill press? I think this is a perfect solution and it combines storage you would otherwise have to find for all the accessories. Hell, drill bits alone would fill two of the drawers.

Nice stand. Is it on wheels or stationary?

Great job. How did you like the under drawer hardware vs. the mid mount hardware?

they were really not all that hard to install, i don’t have any experience with drawers so if i could do them it was pretty easy. i bought the full extension sets at hd and there are pretty pricey about $16.00 for a pair. i cut some 1/8” shims and put them under the rails and then screwed them on, then i laid the shims under each drawer and then extended the rails out then screwed the rails to the drawers. there is a real good video on the Wood Whisperer site
this is where i basically got my idea for this, i plan on trying to build that assembly table too.
and thank you all

Nice stand, looks like those drawers will hold a bunch of stuff.

Dave, Nice cabinet. I’d build one, but the post would keep the drawers from working. LOL

By the way, try these guys next time you need drawer slides. Anything you can think of and nicely priced. I use them all the time and they not only save me money, the have good customer service.

Dave, that’s a great cabinet. If you can locate a lumber yard and hardware supplier in your area that sells to cabinet shops, that is the best place for drawer slides and hardwood etc. The hd in my area is about 3 to 4 times the price on hardwood as the local cabinet makers supply house.

Hey thanks for the tip Unionlabel, i was looking at that site and they are a lot cheaper. we have a hd, a do-it center and a mccoys here in this town and 2 other very small lumber yards although I’m within under 200 miles from a fairly good size city. i will check on your idea next time im there woody and thanks for all the complements.
