DIY compost tumbler ..the guys at the Extension office made these for a test ..they bought used barrels from a surplus store , just be careful what was in the barrels prior to purchase ...made a support , I think theirs had rollers ... drilled holes for air and a door with a latch then filled them up with a mix of wet ,and dry, and turned away ..a bit more than that but it isn't hard...I think that I will make my door a bit larger than this ...just to make it easier ..and do not add meat…

How to make your own compost tumbler. Compost made in a compost maker like this is ready in about four weeks. Make sure that you only fill the barrel about 3/4 full to allow the materials to tumble when you turn it. Also make sure that you wet the material when you add it to the barrel.
