Do yourself a favor and either buy or build a little jig so that all the wholes are the same. This table would work well for me clamping small bits to be drilled but for something as large as a cabinet door things might get squirrely.

Thanks, OP. In for one. This should work well for my upcoming kitchen cabinet refinishing project, where I need to drill new handle holes and hinge mortises. This table will support my doors better than the stock table.

I'm going to follow commenter advice and epoxy the T tracks in place before using.

Yup, I'm still planning on making a jig but I can use this table for support.

Amazon reviews aren't too great (I don't mean the overall score, but the actual reviews, once you start reading them). I'll pass.

I would like to say u get what u pay for, but I think nowadays price isn't a good metric, nor is name brand.
Looking at this I see it's effectiveness being dictated by the drill press. Even the one they show in product description is problematic. The toothed rail looks to be like mine, only screwed at extremes, so susceptible to moving off square while moving up and down, even extremely small movements. For that matter loosing it for movement will do this.
Drill press designs haven't changed since the 50s. With a quality drill press is where the quality of ur final product comes in.
This seems good enough for small projects, as others have stated.

Wen is actually pretty decent for the money. I have a brad nailer and a dremel tool and they have both been solid and cheap.

Seeing the same. Several reviews mention they are using undersized screws for the clamps and track, causing several instances of them just ripping out of the MDF when clamping down.

I have wen stuff and it's fine. Just curtain things are problematic, and this thing is one of them. I image this is made of particle board, glued sawdust as a lot of stuff u buy for woodworking made by manufacturer, not just woodworking, but everything, that really shouldn't be using that material. I have a router table made by Bosch and the height adjustment screws became useless bc they broke free of table top of router unit.
Also my main comment was don't expect much, bc most of issues will be due to ur drill press to begin with. And that this is ok for small pieces.
