    I made a step, acquired a label, gained knowledge and once again the yawning chasm of another step approaches. I still have far to go. How do you win when you have a fraction of the strength of others?

I finally built a drying cabinet, I looked for something to buy for a long time couldn't find what i wanted so I built it.

It has a fan attached to a small charcoal filter, that is on a 15 on 15 off timer, controls your humidity The intake is a dryer flap vent in the floor.

Since it is cold out right now I have a small heater in there attached to a thermostat and I keep it about 68- 71 and about 60% humidity.

The whole thing is sealed with silicone and the door has a foam gasket to eliminate smell when the door is closed.


Tell me what you think, what would you do different? I am always looking to improve my designs.

Man I think you did a real good job. I would leave it the way it is. If you run the filter/fan 24/7 would your humidity drop? Keeping it around 45 or so I would think would be more optimum. you don't want it to get any mold on them buds.

Hey Johnny5,
I have use it to dry a run and the fan 15 min on and 15 min off seems to keep the humidity about right. You dont want your buds to get moldy but you do not want crunchy buds so you have to play with it a bit.

Yeap. Cool I am glad it works well.

How much can you fit in there?

I need to build one myself....just need the time.

I have not used the full potential and only half of the shelves are built for it. It sure beats hanging it in your room and wasting 2 weeks till you can plant again, and no smell. It took about six hours to build with two guys.
