looking for plans for a solar dehydrator

Gail HGail H Posts: 359 ✭✭✭✭

Has anyone used or made a solar dehydrator? Do you have plans for how to make one?

It turns out that my son-in-law is very good at building things (he totally rehabbed my chicken coop!) and he's bored to tears with staying home. I will helpfully supply him with another boredom buster. 😁

The design that I've seen is based on a chimney effect. Air enters the bottom and is warmed in the glass fronted chamber. It exits the top, taking the moisture from the food with it. Supposedly this design even works in a humid climate.

If you have experience with using a dehydrator like this, or another style that you prefer, I would be anxious to hear about that as well.
