Hello Everyone. I built these boxes as a cheap system to dry my crops. For this project i used lowes boxes, fans, a power supply, a toggle switch, a hydrometer, twine and tape.

Start with these lowes boxes. Get two and overlap them together to build one tall box.

Next poke holes in two sides of the box to run the twine through. I did two levels so i could support longer stems.

Next get a fan, and cut out a hole in the box so we can get some air flow.

Here i made little flaps to try and shield the light that may come through the fan hole.

Next i mount the fan inside the box and run two wires from it.

Next i cut out a hole for the switch to mount in and then cut hole for the hydrometer to fit into.

Now hook the power ( red ) wire to the toggle switch, and then from the other side of the toggel switch run that to your power supply. Run the ground directly from the fan to the power supply.

Next get some cannabis and trim it up

When the humidity gets high or the temp, turn on the switch for a few minutes to exchange the air! When you are done, disconnect the power from power supply and fold box and store it for next use.
