This is a chair I built a few years ago out of beach. At the time I thought it was maple. All the lumber was 2×4 that was salvaged from an old church. I made the chair to fit over a standered toilt. Why, why not LOL. All the joint are mortise and tenon. The seat is split in two and hinged on the sides with wood dowels. The design of the chair (not the toilt part) is from Graham Blackburn Furniture By Design pg.123-135 Gothic armchair. Every man should have a throne! :)

A man is a master of his castle, he needs a throne. Kudos for guts to share their throne.

Looks great! One question though.. How do you flush, do you just reach around the back?

Ya it’s the most practical design, you have to reach around the back.
