Compost Barrel Project

Re: Compost Barrel
My first project is welding the frame for a compost turning barrel for my girlfriend. These things cost about 200 dollars, but mine is going to run around 15 because I'm using an old barrel, wheels, and some galvanized pipes that I found on the farm.
The only cost is the bolts that hold the wooden bearings, and the paint. Bolts, washers, and nuts were about 10 dollars. When I'm done it will have wheels so that she can easily move it around her yard. Also, i made it just high enough that she can push her wheelbarrow underneath and just turn the compost out.
The frame work isn't done yet, just the legs.
