How To Build A Compost Tumbler Bucket
This tutorial shows you how to build a compost tumbler bucket system for very little money.
If you are lucky enough to have a garden, you need to have a compost tumbler, they are easy to make, cheap to build and can make compost very quickly. You can scale this compost tumbler to match your needs.
I personally only have a smaller garden and do not require a lot of compost, a 5 gallon bucket would be perfect for me. In fact, I will build one this weekend. My wife has been badgering me about buying one but I don’t want to spend a ton of money on one.
In the materials list it called for 2×4’s but I would look for free pallets and re use the wood from them. This will save you more cash and get rid of someone else’s pallets. I can always find free pallets on craigslist. See how to build your very own in the link below 🙂
