How to: Make a DIY Wooden Desk Fan & Heater

created at: 06/25/2012

Not a day goes by that I’m not thankful that I get to work from home. Not needing to drive anywhere, the opportunities to eat healthfully when I need to, and the ability to keep up with small household tasks throughout the day are simply awesome. There’s only one drawback (well, other than the ability to get away with napping anytime I please): heating and cooling all day. Whereas most folks can simply set the thermostat to catch up with them when they get home from work, since I live in a very temperate climate I’m at mercy of the blazing hot summer days and the numbing chills of winter.   So, I do my best to heat/cool myself rather than the house, and nothing sounds finer than this custom DIY project: a sharp looking mini fan, built from scratch from scrap wood, and including both heating and cooling functions.

Oh…and it glows.

HHarry says, “The fan gives you coolness on a hot summer day. The heater inside provides you with a warm breeze in those cold winter months. This fan/heater comes with a ambient led indicator:  cold=blue, warm=purple. The fan speed and the amount of warmth can be fine-tuned.” [sic]

Cool, right?
