I have taken 16 inch wide used plywood and made a kiln for drying spindles and chair parts. It is 4’ X 2.5’ X 16” D with back and the 2 sides solid and the front is a piece 4’ X 2.5” cut at 6” where the 6” is at the bottom and the hinges are at the top to make a hinged door. I put weather stripping around where the door closes and a cleat in the bottom 6” piece for the door to close against weather stripping. In the top (inside) I put three electrical boxes with one bulb porcilien holders and three lampshades that clamp on the bulbs covered in renolds wrap that are turned on by a switch. The bulbs are 1-100W 2-75W and that keeps it up to between 90 and 120. I have green crest in a form ready to work and install in 4 days. I got the plan from my mentor, but drew langsner has sevral plans in his book” The Chairmaker’s Workshop” which is like mine and plans for a bigger one. Just a thought
