      New life for an old refrigerator that has been made into a solar powered food dehydrator! My landlord is giving me a dead minifridge to make one. I have no idea how to do this but it's going to be an ideal first project to learn how to make solar powered items.

      How To: Make A Food Dehydrator Here is a great video from the folks at This free tutorial outlines the steps for turning an old refrigerator or freezer into a food dehydrator.
