I fully recommend the Weller Smoke Absorber.

I use this inside with windows closed all the time, it was about $40
at Frys, which is probably not much more expensive than the DIY method
and somewhat easier.  They were right by the soldering irons in the
Renton Frys.

It has great suction and uses the charcoal filter, same as the DIY solution.

I'm a bit of a fan of solving simple problems with money, rather than
building every single tool from scratch, but your mileage may vary. :)
