Thanks! Yeah, I use the planer once the wood is dried as it'll have the tendency to warp a touch in the process.
Oh definitely...many ways to build and fasten (that probably being the cheapest)....but I have justify my Kreg jig purchase :)

Thank you for your kind words!!
That is correct. I have two because at some point when the first drum is full, you should stop adding to it and let the compost cook. I'll start adding kitchen scraps to the other one while the first breaks down. I alternate back and forth like this to maximize my compost and I always have the ability to put my kitchen scraps somewhere :)
Thank you! Yeah they both have the same end result...rich, nutritious compost! And that's what counts. But your way to much cheaper :)
Haha thanks! That's how we learn, right? :)
That’s awesome! I agree, it’s adds a little more fun to the project. I had a good time problem solving with this one. Solar panel education is a plus for whoever wants to learn about it too. Anything to helps going more green. Good luck on your project! Be sure to take pictures and make an instructable too. I’d love to see that. I think my next project is going to be a shredder of some sort. I want to start breaking down cardboard boxes and paper bags to use in my compost. If you have any tips let me know...I’d listen to a Master Compostor! :)
Yours look good! From my research turning the pile (whether in a drum or just turning on the ground) speeds up the process because it introduces oxygen into the pile for the microbes to break down the compost faster. But sounds like one way or another you get compost :) I've had my particular barrel for a year now (hand spinning) and luckily it hasn't warped. Hopefully it doesn't! 🤞
Thanks for mentioning about turning the pile to introduce O2 for the microbes. I didn't get into 'how to compost' in this instructable but that was an important thing to mention so I added it to the intro paragraph.

Thanks a lot for the comment and kind words! Sometimes you just have to use what you have. I think that takes a lot more creativity and being resourceful too :)
I'm sorry about the details. I'll be adding more. I was trying to get it posted yesterday before the Work From Home contest had closed. The middle drawer is really for a keyboard because I use a workstation and I use that screen and the desktop screen. I also have a desktop that's hidden in the closet and that wire can reach the monitor too. I also edited the secret drawer section as you're right - I had a lot of typos! Thanks for the comment.
Thanks for the kind words! Appreicate it!

Absolutely and thank you for the opportunity to build it!!!
Thanks so much for the kind comment, gabgra11!
That's a good question and probably one I should have addressed....Yes, I have a platform I'll be securing it to. Unfortunately, being a kid myself not too long ago, I know exactly what you mean! I hope it doesn't happen but you just never know.
Thanks, HollyMann! I really appreciate the kind comments! I haven't delivered it yet to my Downtown (I hurried to enter the Instructable Wood Contest :) ) but I think it's going to be a great hit! I'm going to register it on the Little Library website so people can also find it on a map when they're in the area.
Thanks so much, Electronics 101!
