Drilling machine table

Ikea drilling table

Materials: BEKVAM and ERIK

Description: Just build the Bekvam table and don’t put in the middle shelf. For better stability in future I used steel “L” profiles in corners. You can buy them certainly in any hardware store. And I also “reinforced” the sides of the table with OSB boards. So it should stay stable enough in future as well. Then you just put the Erik drawer box without wheels inside and somehow try to fix it there (I used again those steel plates from hardware store). So there it is. Stable, durable driller-table :)
