A "nice looking" wooden composter for retail sale?

Postby copperbeech » Feb 18, 2012 3:18 pm

I understand it is possible to build an eye appealing wooden composter but I am having a hard time finding one that is pre-made (i.e. comes in parts to be easily assembled) but available for sale in CANADA (better still in Ontario).

For example this one is advertised as MADE in CANADA but I cant find it for sale in Canada!

This one looks even better:

Any Ontarians see something similar for sale somewhere? (I have checked with Lee Valley and they don't carry such an item ie a wooden composter with a top).

I've seen these at Rona.

No clue if this is the "look" you are after though.

Lee Valley has a bracket set that allows you to build your own composter....

Tried finding a Canadian retailer, or even info on the manufacturer of the eco composter, but all hit a dead end on the Canadian side. Copper, you could probably achieve this look very simply, by creating a box out of used pallets, which some companies, shops, stores and markets sell for very cheap or even give away

I did see that Eeyore and it is a possibility but there is no 'lid' as part of this design.

UPDATE:

Today I was able to obtain the wooden composter that Dumbo had found on the Rona website. It is now set up and has 'stuff' in it. Thanks for your help.
