Solar kiln plans
« on: April 21, 2021, 07:10:18 PM »
Can someone direct me to where I can find actual plans for building a solar kiln?  I want  to start cutting my lumber for the build and am in need of a cut list.

Just follow the plans and it will perform very well.  It is a simple and excellent design.
YellowHammerisms:

Take steps to save steps.

If it wont roll, its not a log; its still a piece of tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not pieces of trees.

Kiln drying wood: When the cookies are burned, theyre burned, and you cant fix them.  Dont burn the cookies.
