Hi John. Take a look at mine (sled and drill press table) to see what you think. Both are posted as projects. Also, take a look at The Woodsmith Shop plans. I know they came up with a nice sled and perhaps they did a drill press table too.

Plans? Well maybe I can find the napkin I drew mine on….... LOL. Search this on youtube. Before I made mine I watched a few. Several had links to plans in the description.

Here is one I saw and liked, great for quick cuts very accurate once you set it up. LINK

I’ve had a Woodpeckers Drill Press Table and have since replaced the drill press and needed to have another one. I used Stumpy’s X-Y drill press plans and modified the fence and put a formica top on it and it works great. I like it much better than the Woodpeckers.

Have your say...
