I have taken up a new hobby that has given me some opportunities to build some new projects. Using one hobby to create items for another hobby? Does life get any better than that?
I have taken up Aquaponics and am having a blast with it.
I built this composter/harvester to convert food wastes into high quality fish food in the form of Black Soldier Fly grubs.
The stand is a simple little project but I think it came out quite well. The legs are PT because I had some left over. The rest is untreated dimensional pine lumber. I flooded it with a coat of Thompson’s Water Seal to help it last longer.
If you’ve never heard of Black Soldier Fly Composting/Harvesting there is a lot of info out there. Amazing little insects.
