well thanks for asking, so far some have seen 4 years use. the thing of it is that the worms seem to suck the wood rot off the stuff before it has a chance to rot and farther, but dont take my word, try and put a broccoli stem in a real active worm bin and watch what happens, like a miracle no rot and some have grown roots..........

I have a plastic side board that adds 300$ and the stainless ones are about 7200$ in that size

I will assume here it is 1/2" exterior grade ACX? Have you tried lining it with cheap plastic?

Interesting use for used milk jugs. Have you tried any waterproofing products? A marine grade teak oil might preserve that wood for a good deal longer.

Doesn't have to be teak oil, that is just what popped into my head. Any waterproofing product should help extend the life of the wood, biggest question is if a particular product would affect your worms or not.
