Introduction: Pipette Holder
If you ever have to dispense small quantities of water or other fluids for this or that project or task, pipettes are great. A lot of the time, you can reuse pipettes, but it's often a pain to wash them. You can make a pipette holder for your most commonly used fluids to dry and reuse pipettes. This instructable shows you how.

Step 2: Drill
In this step, drill the crosshairs:
- Indent the wood with something sharp.
- Drill pilot holes.
- Expand the holes.
- Drill final holes.
Step 3: Finish
In this step, finish up the holder:
- Check the pipette fit.
- Label fluids.
- Put double-sided foam-tape on the backside.
- Stick to workbench.
Now you can discard fewer pipettes for whatever projects you frequently work on.
