I am intending to build a wooden compost bin.
If treated INSIDE with creosote will this affect the natural fermenting of the compost.??



May affect any earthworms that would otherwise appear, but not certain about the rest. I certainly wouldn't use the compost on veggies or herbs. Better to use boiled linseed oil, and let it dry at least three days, to my mind.

Thanks for the tip ..Suppose outside would be creosote or best not at all...

Same outside as inside, unless it's an unusually rot resistant wood.
