Uses for Old Washer Drum Tubs

Clothes dryer drums make fine recycle barrels, planters, and small burn barrels. I wouldn't be surprised if they could be used for a number of things I haven't thought of. I have found some have a plate of metal on one end with a lot of holes, and some come with no plate at all, also they have plastic "fins" screwed into the inside of the drum. taken off the large screw holes allow for much needed air flow.

Use an old washer tub for bonfires. Fill it up with wood and watch the pretty glow of fire through the holes. Just don't lay unused wood next to it. It will burn through the holes!
