Compact Drill Press Table

‹Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

Stumpy’s amazing x-y sliding drill press table is a little big for some drill presses, so he got to work on a more compact solution- smaller, easier to build, but still loaded with features, like replaceable inserts, slide out trays for drill bit storage, a unique fence based dust collection system, and a t-style fence locking mechanism.

This basic plan includes a dimensioned cut list and simple drawings so you can see how it goes together. I recommend you also watch the free videos below for additional tips.

  • Basic PDF Plans (dimensions, cut list and basic assembly drawings)
  • Dimensions: Inches
  • Tools required: Circular saw, drill, router

You will NOT receive a paper plan. You will be sent a link to download a digital PDF document that is compatible with most computers and digital devices. You may print it yourself or take it to a printing service. We do not provide 3D Sketchup models or CNC G-code.

Spring Clamps (free)

These homemade spring clamps are easy to make, and cost almost nothing (assuming you have some scrap wood and rubber bands laying around.) They're great for light duty clamping, and make an excellent project for kids- just be sure to supervise while they use the band saw or scroll saw. The link below will provide you with patterns for a large and small version.

Plywood-Cutting Storage Cart

If you use a lot of plywood or if you just like to keep a few sheets on hand, this is the project for you! It's a storage cart that organizes both full and partial sheets. But it also includes a clever feature that holds large panels upright so you may break them down easily  with a circular saw and an edge guide. No more carrying and flipping big, heavy sheets around the shop. Do it all right on the storage cart! The whole thing is mobile so you can roll it around and tuck it in a corner. And it's built from inexpensive construction lumber.

Universal Clamp Rack

This may be the only clamp rack you ever need. It will hold between 20-40 clamps, depending on the type, including F-clamps, parallel clamps, pipe clamps, bar clamps or pistol grip clamps. Set up the rack according to the types you own now. If you get more of a different type later, the rack adjusts to always efficiently use the valuable wall space. And it only requires a half sheet of plywood!

Drum Sander (2-Stage)

This drum sander design is unlike anything you've ever seen before! It is a "dual stage" machine, meaning both the top and the bottom of the sanding drum may be used. This enables you to sand any flat work piece to thickness by feeding it through the machine via a hand-cranked feed belt, OR you can pass your work pieces over the top of the machine for fast sanding of flat surfaces and even edges! There isn't another drum sander with this capability ANYWHERE! It's also designed to use inexpensive, easy to find 6" sanding belts, and rather than peeling off the paper to change grits, you swap out the whole drum via a quick-release system!

Router Table Multi-Sled

What started out as a way to safely hold small parts while working at the router table, became a multi-functional sled that will accomplish several tasks safely and accurately. It's a small parts holder: it's a coping sled for routing on the ends of narrow work pieces (rail and stile construction, tenons, half laps, etc.); and it's a circle cutting jig capable of diameters up to 10-inches.

This sled is surprisingly easy to build, and the plans give you all the information you need, including step-by-step instructions complete with photos. Enjoy!

Box Joint Machine

Building box/finger joint jigs has become a bit of a hobby among some woodworkers, like marble machines or complex mouse traps. They are admittedly complicated, but fun to build and really useful tools. I've designed several, but this one is my favorite. It will cut any joint configuration you can imagine, without any complicated setup or attachments to swap around. You don't need a dado set to use it, though using one will speed up the process. It will cut a joint up to 18" wide, and is compatible with any 10-inch table saw.

Dovetail Workstation

Traditional workbenches are great! The problem is that planning and project assembly tasks are best done at a low bench, but cutting joinery such as dovetails is more comfortable at a higher bench. Most shops don’t have multiple benches for multiple uses, so we bend down for our dovetailing. This workstation seeks to solve that problem! When placed on a standard bench top it raises your work up so you can stand erect and work more comfortably. It includes work-holding clamps so it may be used on any work-surface, no vice required. And other clever features, such as a drawer to hold all your dovetailing tools and a replaceable chopping surface, make it very versatile.

Table Saw Fence

This fence is truly unique with an innovative locking system that self squares to the blade, a micro adjuster for fine tuning your cuts, and an anti-kick-back European style with detachable extensions. Even the rails are made from wood! It's designed to fit any saw from small, bench top units to large cabinet saws, with or without side tables. There's even a built in pencil & accessory holder! (This project can be used on its own, but it is also designed to fit our deluxe table saw workstation)

Deluxe Router Table Fence

This amazingly accurate and versatile router table fence is patterned after the very expensive Incra LS system. It features a set of interlocking teeth creating positive stops every 1/16". You can't miss your mark even by the tiniest fraction of in inch! And when combined with Stumpy's "sliding router table" you can create precise joinery! It also works on any router table and is the most accurate homemade router fence out there.

Simple Router Mortising Jig

This jig is simple and inexpensive to make, but well thought out to provide a surprising level of functionality. It may be used with a plunge router and an edge guide to create accurate, repeatable mortises. You can cut tricky ones too, such as double mortises, parallel mortises and even mortises in round stock.
