Build Your Own Soda Can Solar Heater

Build Your Own Soda Can Solar Heater

We recently featured one way to heat your house with the sun, but DIYer Daniel Strohl has spent three years perfecting his homemade solar garage heater, made out of a wooden box, some vacuum parts, and a lot of empty soda cans.

It may be the middle of summer, a time where we worry about beating the heat instead of embracing it, but there’s no better time to prepare for the winter cold. After all, you don’t want to get caught in December with an unfinished heating project. Sure, the project itself won’t take 3 months, but drinking 180 cans worth of soda might.

DIY Tip of the Day: Instant Brad Nail Holder. Thanks to reader Debora Sowerby, you now have another easy way to pound in little nails without pounding on your fingernails. Push the nail brad into a bobby pin—the kind with one wavy side. Tap lightly to set the brad. Pull away the bobby pin and hammer the brad all the way in.
