My home built Bin

Here are some pictures of my Bin I recently built. Due not it is a prototype. It is a stackable / independent system. I also have a stand that needs to be built with it. Right now I am seeing if the worms will thrive in it. I will be adding / changing size and location of the air vents in the next one I build. Let me know what yall think.
Thanks,
Clayton

Looks really nice- you could put that in the living room- be careful no one thinks it's a coffee table

Neat! That looks like it'll make for some happy (and stylish) worms. I see holes drilled in the bottom, do you have some sort of moisture collection system in the base that we can't see?

Cat - LoL, no coffee table, thanks for the compliment

Fish - When I build the stand, which will be in the next two weeks, it will incorporate a drip pan. Right now I have a towel under there. Also there is a slide in / out screen to keep the worms in on the bottom.

Clayton, why not a coffee table? I agree with Cat that it certainly looks nice enough. Similar idea to this:

Very nice! No one would suspect it is not a coffee table.

Well, yall got me thinking, put it in the living room, and it is right there. The wife put that idea to rest real quick. But on another note, I am going to build a coffee table now.

Make a dual purpose coffee / vermicompost harvesting table. Then you can harvest compost/worms without missing your shows.
