Thought this may be handy for anyone looking to create a compost bin. One of my older videos showing how to make a compost bin/bay with pallets
Cheers @Adam_W, many thanks for sharing.
Note that you can embed videos into your posts. In the text editor there's a filmstrip icon that will say "Insert a video" when you hover over it. Then you just need to insert the YouTube link and change the video size to Large so it appears as big as possible on the site. (We're doing some work on the site design at the moment that will ensure photos and videos appear much larger.)
Thanks again for sharing your expertise with the community.
No problem at all @Adam_W. The buttons are a little subtle at present. We're going to make them a bit clearer.
It's been a while since you kicked off this very popular discussion, so I just thought I'd provide an update that we've recently had many amazing pallet projects shared on the Workshop Gallery. Make sure you check them out.
And please let us know if you've been busy creating your own!
Just bear in mind you should only use Pallets that are pressure- and heat-treated (marked with "HT"), as opposed to being fumigated with the neurotoxin and carcinogen methyl bromide (marked with "MB"). Never use pallets that have had chemicals or hydrocarbons spilt on them
A very helpful reminder @Farnarkleboy. Thanks for sharing the tip.
Let me also extend a very warm welcome to the community. It's great to have you as a Workshop member. I'm looking forward to reading about your projects and plans, and am sure you will receive lots of helpful advice and inspiration from other community members.
Have you got any of your own pallet projects you can share?
Why would grabbing pallets from a bin be illegal? Its going to landfill anyhow. Any lawyers like to assist?
Visitors to this discussion might also be interested to read the member profile about one of our pallet project experts - Marty York.
I trust @Yorky88's story and all the ideas in this discussion will get you inspired to start building your own pallet creations. Let us know how you go!
