To build the compost tumbler we just designed, we'll be using

  • 2, 8' long 2X4s
  • A table saw (For cutting wood, can be done at a home improvement store if you have no access, or consider a hand saw and a bit more time)
  • A power drill
  • 16, 3/8" x 1.5" dowel pins
  • Included in the dowel kit
    • Dowel Jig
    • Wood glue
    • 3/8" Drill Bit
    • Drill stopper 

The dowel jig will make it much easier for us to drill holes more precisely into the wood at the right length to fit the dowels in. There are more benefits to using the dowel jig which I'll go into when we get to the dowel jig section!
