New here and this is the first project I have posted.

I bought a drill press and table from HF on Saturday so i can install my delta t2 fence that should arrive tomorrow, got home and decided it needed a cart to sit on top of. Also needed a place to store the accessories. Drawer is extra tall so i can open my drill bit case while its still in the drawer. All 3/4 ply with pine banding. The back panel is pegboard and hardboard i had left over, you can never have enough pegboard if you ask me.

Welcome to LJ! nice job on the drill press stand.

I have one, I think just like the drill press, but mounted on a bench. I like the drill press but the bench is too high for it. The plan has it being relocated to a stand built just for it. The sooner the better. You will like this forum a great bunch of guys, in spite of themselves. More knowledge than any encyclopedia is represented here.

I think I will have to copy something like that. I sure could use it.

thanks everybody…just a note thing is a little top heavy so some extra weight in the bottom wouldn’t hurt. My plan as of now is too just add some more drawers.

mpatrick, I am in need of a drill press cart also but am having difficulty trying to figure out how high to make it. How tall is yours and how tall are you. I ask your height as I am short at 5’5”. Do you find the height of yours to be comfortable or would you change it if you had to do it over.

Been looking at HF Drill Presses – Which model is that, and also how do you like it thus far?

I will probably be copying your cabinet. Nice Work.
