Here’s a stand I made for my hot glue gun to end messes. Only two 3/4” plywwod scraps and a tin can required. Finally done.

More photos and all construction details on this page of my blog.

No more drops, no more mess. Yess!

Very original idea. I wondered what else you didn’t invent. This would never cross my mind.To serious to be funny.

Once again serge, your genius provides us with another shop invention that will get a lot of use.
Well done.

Simple, but very useful, plus it only takes a few minutes to make since you thought of all the shortcuts for us.
Thank you for sharing.

Super and simple idea! Will have to make one for my shop as to date I have just been using a piece of cardboard to catch the drips. One question- since you have used screws to attach the tin to the wood how do you get it off when full? Pry it off?

Thank you all, guys! I’m glad you like the stand. And I don’t wonder why! Well, it’s all about sharing, as usual.

@Northwest29: Don’t wait until it’s full and unscrew the useful free tin to replace for a new one.

@Northwest29: You could always wax or oil the tin and the glue would never stick to it.
