From pallets to compost bins!

Bernie & Mike Bell from Rendall called into the YARD a few months ago looking for pallets to make into compost bins. They said "  There were some good pallets there, but the lady we spoke to, said they were needed on site, but... there were some old, broken ones, too, so we took those.  In fact, they were easier to deal with, as they didn't need so much taking apart.  Some manky old pallets, a bit of hard work, and......TA-DAH!  Here are our lovely compost bins, made mostly of Steptoze pallets, with a bit of old fence, and some drift-wood.  This means we can now compost our grass cuttings and kitchen scraps, instead of them going to waste."
Excellent work folks! Here's a photo of their smart new compost bins...

This is what we did with an unwanted TV cabinet...  
We would also like your ideas on how to reuse this old helmet.
