Building wooden compost bins
I currently produce a good amount of compost annually in my five plastic Dalek bins, but am thinking of replacing three of these with wooden 3 foot cubes. I would like to ask if the wooden bins should have ventilation slots cut in each plank, or if the planks should just butt up with no gaps? The ones I inherited long ago had gaps and worked fine, but I see the ones you can buy in modular form ready to go have no gaps, hence my question as to which is best? Does the heap heat up quicker without air gaps?
