After "Tailor-made High-back, Extra Long Pine Wood Sofa", naturally there should be a sequential furniture like a coffee table to accompany the sofa. So in this project we teach you how to build a coffee table. Consistent in style with the sofa, all mortise and tenon joints, a tempered glass as tabletop, railings on the lower level, it's simple and easy to the eye. An 8cm height space is left between the glass and tableplate for you to put in your favorite collectable decor. The tailor-made concept is also adopted in this project where the knee height of your family members is the major factor of the table height(a little higher than the sofa seat).

The pictures are very self explanatory, you can make your own XY table specifically fits your drill press according to these pictures.

 Y in extended position
(Y rail can be extended according to the radial arm length. The picture shows Y rail is locked down to the table by 4 screws. )

Y direction extended according to arm length
(Actually Y rail can be any length to fit your drill press needs. You can't  easily find this customized length table on the market, not to mention its light weight and low profile advantages.)

吊扇搖晃 fix ceiling fan wobble

XY-table long stroke drill press1

XY-table long stroke drill press2

本修改非常簡單, 僅需兩張圖就可以解釋清楚了. 在原來Y滑台上用紋釘槍(並上背膠)固定兩條夾板木條當作軌道, 中間裝一塊剛好大小的夾板可X向左右滑動, 將原來的鑽床虎鉗裝上此X桌板即可.
This is a very simple mod that I think 2 pictures will explain it clear enough. Simply add 2 plywood rails on top of the existing Y table(use titebond and brad nail gun to secure the rails), and cut a piece of plywood plate to fit snuggly into the rails of X direction. Re-attach the drill press clamp onto this new X table, and voila you got a simple XY-table for your long-stroke drill press. 

***以下圖片為簡易校正, XY向可輕易調到0.1mm內, 對木製滑台來說算不錯了. The following pics show a simple demo of calibration, the parallelism to XY-axis can be easily achived within 0.1mm, not bad for a wood XY table ***
