I thought gathering materials for our solar dryer was the easy part, now its proving to be the harder part of this project. :)
Maybe the reason is we don't want to spend more than 100 pesos (about $2) for this project. How? We will recycle and beg for materials. :)
Here's what we'll be needing:
1 whole sheet of plywood or at least 7 sheets measuring 18 by 36 inches each.*
8 pcs. 1"x1"x36" or 1"x2"x36" wooden planks
8 pcs. 1"x1"x18" or 1"x2"x18" wooden planks
1 30"x 36" flat metal sheet
A thin sheet of glass measuring at least 18"x36" or a sheet of clear UV treated plastic, the kind they use for greenhouse roofing
clean plastic net
We'll stop here for now.
So far the only materials we got are the first three. Maybe we'll get lucky tomorrow. :)
*If you want a bigger dryer, make sure to get bigger and longer materials.
