cool idea. Currently trying to convince my 2 1/2 year old that that nappies aren’t that much fun, might have to try this!

This is a great idea and a very nice project. I am not sure how old your grandson is but building the “chair” is one thing however getting him to put it to use is another.

Good luck and God bless.

Thanks for sharing these projects.

After a quick view thru the current projects, I belive my dad would be like you if he did woodworking. His grandchildren is the center axis of his world. Very nice projects and keepsakes. God Bless.

No doubt that you chair is for a little boy – the deflector gives it away. Those deflectors look like they would cause some “splash back” on the poor little tyke. I’m not sure, but I suspect that TP holder and magazine rack may be a little over ambitious for now :-)). Great project

aaaaaaaaaaw he will definitely spend a lot of time sitting in this chair (even if he doesn’t “use” it at first).

Do you have a cover to fit over the opening for when he decides to move up to the big throne?

That’s a great chair, but where’s the cup holder? I see MsDebbie wants you to make sure he puts the lid down…....haha
