5 Gallon buckets work really well... Loosen your bindings, but don't take them allll the way off, then flip over the board, put em in the buckets. I put the buckets on folding chairs too, but recently i just put a block of wood under one side of the board and went no buckets. worked fine. Ultimately the key to a good wax job is patience, and letting the wax cool/harden for a long while b4 scraping. I normally let it sit for a full day.

OT: I have a burton waxing iron... got it because it was on closeout and cheaper than the others. ($30? maybe? i 4get) Only thing bad about conventional clothes iron is the lack of temp. controls being made specifically for waxing. Holes =/= problem.
