you can buy casters and screw them to a couple of 2 x 4's and easily place the barrel on it and it will spin fine. Como on folks. He got you most of the way there.

Love the vid, but Dude, I'm mad at the  padlock, really? Is it that serious where you live at? Lol, great job, keep it up.

Simplest design I've seen. Will be doing this soon, Thanks.

Just put a pipe through the middle and be done with it. Or really you can just roll it back and forth. It's not rocket science.

No room for a compost bin, try cold composting chop and drop: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHGF5fcsq64&t=6s

Thanks for the video. Many suggestions below, everyone will have an opinion. But this is a start.

Great video as for the critics i ll say , it easy to critic a prototype because easy to improve on something thats already made.

como se llama la cancion??

this guy cracks me up he's wearing a respirator for painting and he's got a combo lock on the compost

The lock is probably so it doesn't open when you turn it.

In Australia it would be probably cheaper to buy one already made. The water drum, like the one here, would cost something between $60 and $100 (second hand) and the plywood itself (the one on the video is at least 3/4" solid) a full sheet from Bunnings would cost another $100 to $140. And remember since you have to wet your compost from time to time you need better one than just ordinary plywood board, probably structural. Good, gearboxed tumbler, like Maze brand, costs at Bunnings $215 and no labour involved except some assembly (plastic panels snap into each other). The one I just mentioned is very practical and easy to clean. Same goes for buying plastic containers to build a worm farm. New one costs about 70 to 80 bucks, but if you wanna built one yourself with good quality plastic tubs (what goes without saying) it will costs you over $150. Plus you still have to drill holes, buy a spout, figure out the stand, etc. So far the only thing I have done cheaper, rather than buying them were timber raised garden beds. Which are extremely expensive if you after good quality once.

why do you put a padlock on your tumbler? do people steal compost where you live?

I like the design concept of using the base and top rebated areas as the rotation keeper. good idea.

Haha you just locked it. I never heard of a compost thief. :D

what if you cut a hole in the bottom large enough for a tote and cut open another hatch that has a screen in it so that when you tumble it the already finished compost falls into the collection container and can be used? if I'm very wrong I apologize I literally just started learning this stuff and not really entirely sure how it all works for sure just kind of guessing. lol

This is so convinient

Great instructional video!! Thanks for sharing. One thing I would add to this tumbler is a few fins on the inside of the tumbler to aid the mixing of the composting material.
Stepan Yeomans

this is pretty complicated and sort of a "production". Gotta be a more straight forward way
dave7ization
very good but u dont tumble them daily or u'll end up losing the heat...1st tumble after filling to mix...2nd tumble when the heat drops off...3rd tumble only if it gets smelly.

и для чнго это конструкция?
ahmed khazal
Great! I like it.

Looks good, but I wonder how long the plastic 'hinge' will last before snapping? I was thinking of using stainless hinges.
Chris Scully
gunna be so heavy and hard to spin
TheBushdoctor68
Sure, why keep composting simple while you can spend extra time and money on it. For many gardens you probably need more than one tumbler so that's another great project to work on. Oh, and let's not forget the pleasure of having to make it tumble each day. Brilliant.

スゲー判りやすかった、今までどう処理したら良いか等々、アイデアの宝庫みたいな 動画だった、そうだよね現物合わせで結構行けるんだよねえ。

neat simple good job.i reckon a pole through the middle of the barrel with or without blades :D and crank handle at one end could be added to help spin better? just a suggestion.

Robert Askme
Very cool setup nice and simple but most likely very effective!

mrZ0NES

Van Avakian
what if i've made too many holes....i made it after seeing this video
Vanessa Hadden
This design looks awesome and easy, but I'd like to ask how easy it is to spin when it's full of wet, steamy compost :)? Thanks for the tute.
