Frustration with inability to drill holes is so many things with a bench top drill press.
The inspiration is a bench top drill press mounted to the top of a 4 sided box with no front or back.
What is needed is a flexible way to secure work pieces below the drill spindle.
Let us start with making a drill box with a grid of holes on all 4 sides.
We can now start building fixtures to secure work pieces that are anchored to the drill box anchor holes.
