    Thanks. I like that shelf design too for the combination of strength, ventilation, and appearance.

    I made them with a 3/4" plunge cutting router bit. It was a PITA and I messed up a couple boards along the way but I think it was worth the trouble.

    THANKS!

    I am about to pull the trigger on such a setup and finding all this info was a PITA before you pulled it together.

    This will save a lot of BOTL a lot of wasted search time.

    I decided to do something with the scraps leftover from making the shelves. I had 5 pieces left (bought 5 boards which made 5 shelves) so I decided to make a small box. I am certainly no carpenter, and the pieces were not exactly square but it turned out alright. I just got a bundle of Famous Nic 3000 Torpedoes and they fit perfectly. I used small brads and nailed them together. No glue involved.

    Thanks for the thread, Kelcey. VERY helpful! I'm in the midst of getting my VT up and running and have used this as my guide!

    You the Munkey!

    I think a lot depends on where you have them located. My A/C system maintains 75 and 50% RH in the house during the hot/humid months. The drains are plugged on my two vinodurs, 1.5 lbs of beads each, with interior temps maintained in the mid to upper 60's.

    I have yet to see a drop of condensation inside either of them since setting them up last winter.

    Thanks for compiling this- I learned not to put my stuff directly on the floor of my new vt, thanks!

    Hot as a pistol but cool inside.

    Grat's bro, you have truly succumbed to the power of the Dark Side! You can place boxes on the bottom if you use extra cedar(broken boxes) to line the bottom. What little moisture that will accumulate out here on the WC should be absorbed by the cedar. This my not work in areas that have higher humidity.

    So, lets say you live in Phoenix AZ and the RH is much less than 50% (say 15-20% in the spring/early summer because your A/C unit runs dam near continuous.) You keep the house between 76 and 78. Is the humidity created inside the VT going to create condensation easier in a more humid exterior climate or a dry one? And, is the higher exterior temp going to cause the humidity to accumulate easier because it's running more?
    (sorry about the newb question)

    I'm with SmokinApe in that I am not sure about closing off the drain...

    "to close or not to close, that is the question..."

    Thanks...

    Fairly low humidity here. Plugged my drain with no condensation so far. Beads are working great.

    Beware according to the manufacturer the maximum ambient temp for these is 77 degrees.
    Ever wonder how a puffer fish keeps a cigar lit under water? Yeah me too!
