A great, stylish and easy to build DIY Beehive-style Compost Bin. Easy to follow, detailed step-by-step plans to make imperial or metric bins.

My wife and I hate the look of the big black plastic compost bins. Also, we were worried about flies and vermin with open compost bins. So I designed and built this beehive-style compost bin.

These beehive style compost bin plans make it easy to build with simple tools and readily available materials.

If you’re looking for a useful and simple first project that looks great. You just found it. My highly detailed instructions cover a lot of basic techniques and skills. The plans are clear and concise.

A great, stylish and easy to build DIY Beehive Style Compost Bin. Included, are plans to make both imperial or metric bins.

Beautiful, durable, and functional. These easy to follow, and extremely detailed step-by-step plans can have you complete your compost bin project in just one day.

Make your compost bins from ordinary, inexpensive, and easy-to-work-with 3/4in x 6in (18mm x 144mm) and 1in x 1in (25mm x 25mm) softwood timber. They look great anywhere, no unsightly wooden pen with an old bit of carpet thrown over the top.

Having a garden compost bin is invaluable when it comes to growing healthy vegetables and flowers. These easy to build, attractive DIY compost bins are perfect for making great compost.

Making Perfect Compost
If you want perfect compost and you enjoy a bit of woodwork, these are the compost bins your you.

A compost bin needs to be big enough to generate and hold heat for decomposition. However, it also needs to be small enough to be able to easily turn and maintain.

The first rule of composting is that a compost heap must be big enough to create the heat needed.

The second rule of composting is to provide for good airflow. Therefore, the layered design has small vents between the layers allowing for just enough air to circulate.

Compost must be easy to turn and maintain. Our layered system creates the optimum compost heap. Easy, lift the layers off to turn the compost either into a second bin or within the same one.

When you need to use your perfect compost, simply lift the layers off and it’s right there for the taking.

The tough construction will hold up for years and years of composting.

So happy I found these design plans! I have been wanting to make a beehive style composter for a long time, but didn't know where to start. These are so much more appealing than the plastic bins that are so common. Grant's plans are very detailed and clear. He takes you through every step of the process. I would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to try making a DIY composter.
