My parents are starting to yell at me for getting melted solder and flux residue on the the white tile table. It comes off but is a bit tricky some times.

This was a very easy project to do. It cost under $10 and can be made in less than 5 minutes.

Sorry about the pictures being a lower quality then some of my other instructables. I got to the house before my parents got there with their camera, so I used my phone.

Step 1: Materials

You need a few things for this.

  • 12 inch square tile. The color material type of tile is your choice. This was fancy cream marble at $4.75 a square foot. I wanted a piece of black granite with white specks ($2 a square foot) but this looked nicer.
  • Rubber feet or bumpers. $2-$3 These I recommend. The big ones are 3/4 Square by 1/2 thick. They are available at Lowes
I just noticed this Instructable. It's very similar in spirit to my own &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.instructables.com/id/3_High_Heat_Work_Surface/&quot;&gt;$3 High Heat Work Surface&lt;/a&gt;.<br/><br/>How is the natural stone tile working out for you?<br/>
I have not had the chance to make anything since then. I'm slowly working on a project that is kind of like the one that 5volt made <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Build-a-bell-striking-clock-for-your-PC-and-a-fire/">http://www.instructables.com/id/Build-a-bell-striking-clock-for-your-PC-and-a-fire/</a> I have not had the time to work on that also.<br/>
