DIY Solar Heater: Make it Out of Recycled Soda Cans

If you’re a handyman, but you find your hands getting chilly in your shop or garage where a repair may be cumbersome, consider this super-easy money-saving idea: make your own solar heater. All it takes is a frame, some odds and ends from the hardware store, and a powerful thirst.

Now you can take advantage of the sunny side of your building by converting that sunlight into heat. This DIYer created what looks very much like an old-fashioned radiator, but is actually a solar wall made by painting used soda cans black and placing them in a wood frame with a plexiglass cover. He also added inlet/outlet channels that he built from wet-vac components to his contraption. Once he set it up facing that sunlight, he managed to raise the warmth in his garage.

This video gives the details so you can do it yourself:
