I made mine out of pallets. One large one for the back wall, three standard pallets for the ends and centre division. The front is made of removable planks and I made a hinge lid...

You might want to consider building something that's a little more open, allowing birds to drop things onto your compost and attract more of the wildlife you want, such as worms, from beenath.

Daisy - Leadfarmer's bins look pretty darn good to me!

Pallets are the most 'palletable' but they don't last too long. I allow about two to three years, and then they need replacing. You could consider lining them with plastic sheeting, or maybe carpet bits, but they are free, so what the hell ?

I would be careful about coating them with creosote or wood preservative, as some of these things can affect the contents quite adversely. Possibly, a water based preservative might be OK, but I have no history of using this for compo bins.

Good luck anyway.
