Introduction: Wood Burning and Solder Station

Picture of Wood Burning and Solder Station

This is a station to keep wood burning and solder iron and their different tips in the same place along with the solder spool. You should make the design based on your need. If you need more of any parts of the design just add it. It is a very easy and practical concept based on copper and wood materials creating an industrial look.

Step 1: Material and Basic Design

Picture of Material and Basic Design

1. A piece of wood( I used pine) 2. A piece of copper pipe( should be large enough to securely hold the irons and a bit longer in length so they won't touch the wood. 3. Drill bits in the size of the iron tips and copper pipe 4. Board for covering the base 5. Glue 6. Stain and paint and sand paper Glue the wood pieces and make respective holes and check the fit there are lines and holes also for the stand that came with the iron

Step 2: Holes for Installing Stand

Step 3: Check the Configuration

Step 4: Prepare the Pipes

Sand horizontally with sandpaper for appearance and make notches on the top to hold them on the copper pipes.

Step 5: Paint and Finish

Mys suggestion apart from the air holes would be to put the tubes at an angle to make removing and inserting them easier, but never the less a good project that many think about but never actually get round to doing!

I tried something similar a while ago. You are gonna need to drill holes in the copper pipe to allow air flow. If not you will burn and melt the handles of your soldering iron and wood burner. Looks very well done otherwise.

I was going to make the same suggestion, without holes the handles will burn even with the better soldering iron.
Oh, I think you could add a very important thing: a cleaner sponge or a brass sponge (like http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Soldering-Iron-Tip-Cleaner-Brass-Sponge-and-Holder-/170946453111).

Nice and cheap idea :D
