    Left side tapering plenum contains downward blowing stove hood fan and heating element from toaster oven . Warmed air blows across 6 16 by 16 trays that are separated by upward sloping steel flashing baffles . Air is forced up through each tray and exits on right into upward expanding air exit. No moist air touches any other food. 1/4 inch through rods support flashing on the front and back .trays sit on top of flashing on right and bolts on the left side above baffle. Case was made from bits and pieces and could be made from washer /dryer/stove cases. I have made several much larger ones from insulated garage door panels .

    Pedestal greenhouse or general-purpose table

    Pedestal greenhouse or general-purpose table

    Straight table legs get in the way and are fragile without lots of bracing. A pedestal base with 45 and 30/60 geometry uses 40% less lumber than a 6-legged table, is self-adjusting on un-level ground, and is much stronger than a 6-legged table (and MUCH stronger than a 4-legged table!). It uses a combination of tension and compression to keep the table top from deforming under load. It allows tables to be placed closer together, as a wheelbarrow can run between tables beneath the table top.

    Cheap Electric Thresher???

    Cheap Electric Thresher???

    Don't get me wrong, I love all the bicycle powered tools being built but I was hoping to find something cheaper and easier. This led me to purchase a Sun Joe leaf Mulcher (https://www.amazon.com/Sun-Joe-SDJ616-Shredder-13-Amp/dp/B00EUU044S). I plan on threshing oats, bell beans and tillage radish seed pods once they are bone dry. I think it has potential to do the trick.
