"Pee Stool"

I made this for my two Aussie grandsons. It’s a very simple project for a very basic need. It’s used in the toilet, or what you polite people call bathroom, although it has nothing to do with baths.

The wood is re-cycled Tassie Oak taken from old church pews that were about 50 years old.

If you are wondering, the plugged holes in the legs are not mistakes, just holes drilled in the wood to assemble the pews.

Very nice Don. I must admit that at firstt I was shocked when people said toilet to me. But now have been here for a little over a year, your right the toilet has nothing to do with bathing.

Anyways its a very nice stool. Have a 3 year son myself these definatly come in handy.

Nice stool, Don.

So you don’t have a bath tub in the toilet room?

No, can’t imagine anything more disgusting when you think about it.

One more thing the europeans got right… except the fact that in some homes, you need to leave the “potty room” and go down the hall to wash up in the bathroom proper. :)

Beautiful wood, nice stool, interesting sort of project for using “salvaged church wood” on some levels ;)

Thanks, guys.

Scott, I don’t want to claim too much for Aussie homes. There are still homes here in Austalia’s second largest city with dunnies – outhouses.

You made me laugh out loud when you you pointed our the irony of the project’s wood source. I hadn’t looked at it that way.
