Low-cost kiln plans
Information sources for constructing low-cost kilns. 1998.
by Professor Gene Wengert
Do you have any information on an efficient, low cost kiln project?
The UW-Madison Forestry Dept has a report on a low cost, very effective, and widely tested solar kiln ($2)--it is the same design as developed at Virginia Tech. If interested in an electric dehumidification kiln, ask the Virginia Forest Products Association (P.O. Box U, Sandston, VA 23150) for a copy of their $7 booklet on the subject.
Editor's Note: For more information on ordering the solar kiln report, send an e-mail message to: email@example.com
Please include: "for the Wood Doctor" in your message.
