- put packs of ice in the bottom for a BBQ cool-store (as supplies are used, the rest is easy to reach by raising the board)
- store potting mix for the spring to autumn planting season
- use the bin for garden refuse collection for wheeling to the compost bin
- make a nesting area for your chooks (chickens)
Step 1: Materials and tools
MDF fibreboard or plywood (in my case 20mm thick MDF)
something of similar radius to the inside corner of the bin
pencil or marker pen
round file or some sandpaper
Unknown: I had all materials and tools already to hand.
Step 2: Mark, cut and drill floorboard
Use something with a similar arc to the inside curve of a front corner of the bin to mark two arcs in what will be the front corners of your board. In my case, this was a roll of electric fence* wire. In an upcoming short Instructable I'll show you another method for transferring this curve.
Cut out the shape. A jig saw is easiest for this.
Drill a hole in each corner that is large enough for a snug fit by your rope. Don't put the holes too close to the edges.
* New Zealander Doug Phillips invented the non-shortable electric fence in 1962.
