well I think I’m finally done making shop furniture this drill press pretty much completes my shop (for now),there never done.made mostly out of other project leftovers,melamine,hard board,clear doug fir,baltic birch and plywood.full extension ball bearing drawer glides and 3” full swivel wheels.not a lot of bells and whistles, mostly ideas from various jocks,made to fit my needs.drill table is from rockler,didnt feel like making one myself.

Going to have to borrow your vertical bit storage drawer idea. Much easier access and organization than laying them in a horizontal drawer. Looks great!

Very clean and tidy made. Not just functional, good looking too (I don’t pay much attention to beauty on my workshop accessories and maschines). Does this vacuum cleaner actualy function on drill press? I still don’t bother to make it since I doubt on it’s functionality. If it vacuums only half of sawdust and you have clean other half manualy, than I probably wont make it.

Nice work there Pottzy matches everthing else in your workshop, and a very fine workshop indeed.

So whats in the other three drawers?
and on the side do you live in a house with a big backyard backed by two smaller houses facing the next street.

ivan-yeah its tough to vacuum all the dust and chips that fly off drilling,so about half gets sucked up.
rob-thanks for the compliment.the other drawers are kinda empty,took the picture right after completion,and backyard is small,not a lot of big yards in so cal,bigger shop space is more important-lol.
dee1-thanks for the compliment.
