For me, this is one of those projects that Ive been wanting to build for years but could never seem to get around to it. Well now I have.
Taking inspiration from other drill press tables Ive seen, I set out to design my own. I used the Fusion 360 design program to do so. I love this program for the amount of detail it offers and the ability to make highly detailed building plans straight from the program. And, speaking of building plans, if you are interested in the plans for this build, you can get them from my website.
