rotating compost bin from wooden spool?

i recently acquired one of those large wooden spools that the electric company uses to store miles of wire. i'd like to build a rotating compost bin with the spool. has anyone seen any plans on how to do this?
would simply covering the outside with 1/4" hardware cloth do the job (with a few nailers/braces of course)? how often should i turn the thing?
fwiw, i compost solely for the purpose of trash reduction. i do not have a garden or use the compost for anything. i compost small amounts of yard waste, all compostable food scraps, shredded junk mail
