This bin actually cost us $100 total in supplies. We were going to build it from pallets but I wanted something a little nicer aesthetically, one I could take with us since we rent, and one that would last a few years.
We bought pressure-treated wood knowing there would be some risk of chemicals leaching into the compost, but we thought the risk was minimal at most.
You can drop the screw gun and screws, and go with hammer and nails and build this completely power free…that is if you don’t count your blood, sweat, and tears.
That being said it was very easy to make especially for a novice carpenter like myself. We hope this video will help you get your compost on!
