Completely forgot to photo document this build, but I think it's pretty straightforward so I decided to upload it anyway!

Step 1: Material
- Angle Iron
Step 2: Tools
- Cordless drill
- Dremel (or other rotary tool)
- Metal file
- Welder (optional)
- Angle grinder (optional)
- Wood glue
- Nails 'n stuff
Step 3: Building
I designed this workstation to have an open top box to put materials in. I also wanted to be able to hang some wires/ rolls of tape/ solder on it. So I added the dowels and dowel holders.
The dowels are kept in place by a nail in each end of the dowels.
Step 4: Soldering Iron Holder.
I started with an angle iron. Cutting a 'V' shape in one of the sides allowed me to bend it 90°. I did this again so that I ended up with a 'U' shape and cut off the excess. I drilled two holes that the solder iron fit in to. I used the file, dremel and an angle grinder to smooth out the edges.
(Optional! I welded the angles together just for looks and stability, this is not necessary though)
I screwed it to the side of the work station at an angle.
Step 5: Done!
Let's build something!
