Rory looks GREAT, and I LOVE your new grooming station! I wish I had a place to try the bin method, but my kitchen sink is just too small, and my knees won't take using the tub.
As far as the dryer is concerned, yeah, human driers work, but they take a lot longer. One thing you can do is to set up one dryer on the stand, pointed at the dog and set on low, then work on the dog with a second dryer in your hand. That way they are getting dried on both sides at the same time.
Still, in the long run, I am really glad I finally switched to a force dryer. I first had a cheap B'air dryer… they work fine, but are VERY loud. Now I have a Kool Pup and absolutely LOVE it!!! It and the B'air take about the same amount of time, but the Kool Pup is MUCH quieter, and has a rheostat, so you can dial in the speed you want for faces, etc.
I can dry Kodi with one of the force dryers in half the time a human hair dyer takes. It DOES take some getting used to… you handle it differently than a human hair dryer. Heather Andrews posted a GREAT video of using a force dryer that helped me immensely!
