A day of skiing tends to leave me with damp ski boots that are difficult to dry. The same problem happens with my hiking boots and this can cause boots to smell.
|The boot dryer is not meant for outdoors; I just think grass makes a nice background.|
The boot dryer is open at the bottom to give it two different modes of operation. It can either be powered by the large computer fan that is in the center, or the box can be placed of a forced air heat floor vent. This is especially effective during cold winter days, when the heater is running a lot. There's a small plate to cover the fan if floor vents are used for ventilation.

The wooden box was put together with wood glue and finished with alcohol based aniline dye and a couple of coats of polyurethane.
