To you have a drill press? I have to say, I’m kinda crushing on this tool right now. After Chris and I took over my dad’s workshop in the garage I decided that I wanted to try and use every tool it contained…and that ended up being a lot of tools. There were two that always freaked me out a little – the drill press, and the band saw.


Last fall I used the drill press for the first time when I build the ladder for our master bathroom. It turns out…I love it! Drill press all the things!


No really, after my ladder I started searching the interwebs for all the things I could make using the drill press. I frickin love this thing! Here are all the awesome DIYs I found that use my new favourite tool:

I would also love to make a wood/bamboo lap desk (like this one) but I haven’t found a tutorial yet so I might just have to make my own.
