Drill Press Stand

A two drawer file cabinet can be easily converted to a drill press stand, most drills will require a base to raise the top of the cabinet to a convenient height. The locking drawers are an excellent place to store power tools out of the reach of small children that may frequent the work area.

Lay some 3/4" plywood cut to size on top of the cabinet and drill mounting holes for drill press. A simple base made from 2 X 6 material raises the cabinet to a good working height. For extra stability fasten the back of the cabinet to a wall.
