I made this a while back. Really makes the drill press much more useful for woodworking projects. Can’t remember if it was a WOOD or WOODSMITH project, but was one of the two for sure. Has a lot of adjustment capability and works great.

Update: table measures 29 1/4×14 1/2 and added a couple more pics, and was from June/July 2004 Wood Magazine

That’s really impressive. It took me a minute figure out why you would need such a long table. That fence extension is very interesting.

June/July 2004 issue of wood magazine. Will measure later today and send. I built last year, never throw away my magazines. Works great with multiple adjustments in fence, even micro. (Sorta).

Appreciate all the feedback, took a while to build.

I like that design a lot. Nicely done. I’ve got a jobber MDF one I bought years ago that works “OK”. It’s made out of MDF though which isn’t my favorite material as far as strength goes. I’ve been meaning to build one. I do like to use one of those vise grip style clamps for small pieces from time to time. It’s limitations are 3/4” thick material though due to the length of the threaded portion. That means I use 3/4” phenolic board (expensive) or phenolic faced ply wood or go with a thicker plywood base and forget about the old habits, vise grip clamp. I realize there are ways around it, but the vise grip clamp is handy. I recall seeing an article with a plan for a phenolic table in one of my old woodworking magazines. Pretty sure it was FWW and was green in color. Maybe a good reason to do some serious back reading.
