We're all gonna live in an environmental friendly world, aren't we? When I bought my soldering iron, it didn't come with a stand. I thought I needed one or even make a simple one, but hey, guess what I saw?! I love wine and I always recycled my wine bottles. Why don't I used my bottle as a stand? Here is the one I use.
You may put some stones or coins inside the bottle in case you knock it off. Be careful that the top half of the bottle would get hot when you put in the soldering iron so grab the bottom bit to move it.
Step 1: Empty Your Bottle and Clean It
Clean your wine bottle and you are ready to use it. So why bother making a proper stand? You got one in your house already!!
