  • screws and metal corners for mounting;
  • small stones;
  • paint.

Vet27 built something like two frames between which is sandwiched a heater.To the moisture flowing from the frozen and wet shoes, did not get on the electrical components of the device forumchanin power supply cord with indicator and leave the cabinet dryer.

Paint timber, gather all the elements of design and fix the radiator in the enclosure.Do not forget the legs - they are necessary to the floor and dryer itself is not heated.The size and design of the legs, choose, depending on the interior hallway and your imagination.Be sure to check the dryer on a makeshift operation, and then lay on the radiator stones.

Make feet higher, and then it will be at the bottom of a shelf or attach additional grate for drying, such as gloves.
