Solar Kiln

This was built 9 years ago to dry timber for flooring, doors and windows etc. for future building projects. It was built partly to overcome the problem of being supplied with badly seasoned timber from merchants, which would then shrink, split and cup etc. The design is based on a kiln pioneered by Jonathon Guest in Wales. He advised and supplied the control panel which operates the circulation and extraction fans. For further details see his very informative WEB site, www.jonathan-guest.co.uk/solar-wood-kiln.htm‎.
