I built this auxiliary drill press table to give me the extra support and room I need when drilling cabinet doors and sides. The core is MDF but particleboard would also work fine. I edged my table with oak to make the edges more durable. The plastic laminate provides a smooth surface to work on and shouldlast a long time.Having plastic laminate on both sides keeps the table stiff and stable. The table insert is replaceable and the fence is quick and simple to adjust.

The T-slot tracks make it easy to add other jigs and fixtures. My table measures 18 in. by 35-1/2 in. and has proved to be a good size for most work. I bought all the parts at my local home center and woodworking store for about $75.
