Thanks James. I'm not sure if that wood would be pressure treated or if it would rot really quickly (not good when you're thinking long term composting!) Are they what you've used for yours?
Does anyone have an experience of "Green Fingers" ? I'm tempted to get two of these
(based on them being prettier than daleks and cheap enough to make it not worth my buying the raw materials).
At least now I know what the plastic dalek types aren't all that bad - I was worried that perhaps they didn't let enough air circulate and the contents just sweated instead of rotted. They may turn out to be the better option (or at least easier) as with the strong lids and robust style I know we can keep the visiting inquisitive dogs out and it can be easily hidden away from view with some trellis.
I've seen some very pretty bee hive compost bins which we could at least turn into a focal point rather than an eye sore and move them to a sunnier position but the costs just make my wallet run away in fear!!
I guess I'd best learn carpentry over Christmas!
