In this example we use 30” long slats, but you could adjust the size of the bin, according to your needs and tastes.
Use several clamps or ask a handy friend to assist you, while locking the components together. Therefore, you should install 2×2 rails on the interior faces of the bin, as in the image. Measure the components attentively, as to get the job done properly from the very beginning. As you can see in the diagram, you need to build two of these. Building the lid for the compost bin is as simple as the previous steps, provided you take accurate measurements and use the right carpentry techniques. The battens should be 2-3” shorter than the lid, on the side towards the exterior of the bin. Check attentively the bin, to make sure all the components are locked together tightly with screws.

Building a wooden compost bin for your garden is a great idea, if you want to grow organic vegetables or you just want to get rid of the vegetal residues in an efficient manner.

Apply several coats of paint or stain over the components, in order to protect them from decay. If you have enjoyed the free project, we recommend you to share it with your friends, by using the social media widgets.

The gaps between the slats will let the air to get trough the compost and boot up the process. Moreover, the components should be installed properly, making sure the are no gaps between the slats.
Select the lumber with great care and align all the components, before driving in the screws into place. There are a few other issues but they could be overlooked if the instructions were just put together more concisely.
