They’re quite easy to make for someone with a basic knowledge of diy.

First job is to cut out a piece from the blue barrel/water butt, for the compost material, cut a slot 400mm x 200mm approx carefully with a jigsaw, as this piece needs to be kept.

Attach the hinges, to the main barrel, and to the peice that was cut out, to make the barrel complete, attaching garden bolts/pin locks at same time with 5mm nuts and bolts.

The frame simply nailed together peices of 75 x 75 timber, or old joists and bricks to make it easier to load, unload, turn and use.

Then fix the casters to the frame, ensure the casters are at the edges of the barrel where the plastic can support the weight of the composter when full and can be rolled.

The composter works really well, the weeds should turn into compost quite quickly.

If you fancy taking the strain out of composting, why not give them a spin – quite literally!
