I'd been looking at these fancy schmancy compost tumblers online as I'd gotten tired of turning my compost pile. There were 2 big detractions from these prepackaged tumblers; 1- too expensive for my penny pinching ways, and 2- they all sat way up in the air making it quite difficult to rake and shovel material in and out.
This looks to solve those two issues.
Step 1: Materials
1 55 Gallon Barrel (preferably one whose previous inhabitant was not poisonous)
1 3 Ft. x 18 In. Board
4 NON Pivoting Wheels
2 Pivot Hinges
2 3 In. Pin Locks
Cutting Implement (I used a miter saw)
