30 years or so ago The Mrs. requested a dehydrator for doing fruit leathers, jerky, and just general drying fruits and veggies. So I found this outfit called Living Foods Dehydrators and ordered their plans. Remember this was 30 years or so ago. Well, The Mrs. eventually wore the thing out. So I made her a new one. Called the same outfit to purchase the Warm Air Generator (WAG) and surgical screening for the trays. Used (geographical reference word removed here) Baltic Birch plywood for the box, and fine pine for the trays and tray supports, and brass furniture. The top, which slides to allow the rising moisture laden warm air to escape, is hardboard to resist the rising heat and I left the inside of the entire unit unfinished. I made a twin for one of the daughters-in-laws as she wishes to start drying stuff. The sides are 16” x 16”.
