Project Information

Made this DP table for my new (used) drill press. I incorporated a few features from different plans. Instead of cutting a dado slot for the t-tracks, I built up the surrounding areas with 3/8 birch plywood. This made it easier to create the center removable insert, which I made 6 extra ones while I had the saw set for the bevel angle.

You did a great job on a very useful accessory. I like the method of laminations as you described. I may have to go that route when I finally get around to making one too.

Looks very nice. I made one a couple months ago. Simple yet works very well. I can't believe I have done without one for so long.

Glenn,

welcome to LJ. I am relatively new too, but one thing I have come to realize is that the folks here are genuinely kind and interested in your work! You will find a welcome home here! Nice work on the table too:).

Very Respectfully,

Very nice work. I am adding it to my archive of DP tables for the day I am finally ready to build mine. This one goes near the top of the list.
