I made this for doing what you are talking about but I use it for drilling holes in metal or plastic pipe.

I like what you made WoodButch, and I may do the same or something similar. If I do, I'm going to turn it 90 depress on the table so the drill press column can't get in the way of the product to be drilled.

I worked on the drill press jig today, I got the material cut up and drilled. It needs to be welded, sand blasted and painted yet.

Progress, so far I'm happy. Thinking about painting it a gray, a color that won't show dust as much as black does.

I put stick on sandpaper on the inside edges to hold better.  Seems to work.

I noticed that on the first group of pictures, nice job.

Didn't read all the responses, but the way I'd do this is to drill the hole first, then put the holes on lathe centers.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
