Again this isn’t strictly wood working and in fact I didn’t even do the wood work, I bought it. I post this as an idea promoter. I can see a lot of possibilities with these boughten toilet seats. I had this one and just added the carved leather. You could make a new top piece and carve it. rout it, cover it with something make it from different woods, etc, etc, ad infinitum. It seems every one wants to customize the throne room now days. When I was a kid it was down the path and contained catalogs.

The song “Back in the Saddle Again” comes to mind. Beautiful work Mr. Angle.

Beautiful work, Thos.

I’m glad too see you made a “saddle” for the only “horse” I ever ride.

Hey Tom;

WOW, as always!

You should mount it on a wall somewhere. No, some nut would try to use it. LOL

Great workmanship and design.

Thos., Glad you are back… Very nice work. One day I’ll have to pick your brain about the finer points of leather work. You truly are a craftsman.

I don’t know. Having been involved in a small way with toilet training some children, I have a philosophy that you shouldn’t do anything to make people afraid to use the facilities. Frankly, that looks much too nice to use, but (on the other hand) everyday objects should always be made as beautiful as possible. What to do, what to do …

Guess I’ll have to go somewhere and think it out. You’ll never guess where …

Very nice, I bet your home is amazing with all the custom work you do. These wooden seats could be anothe use for the Compucarve – monogrammed thrones perhaps?

:-) I’m starting to recoginize your projects, when I saw this on the homepage I knew without looking this was your work!

Lee, I thought it might make a good frame for Grandpa’s picture. Then if ya didn’t want to look at ‘im you could close it. LOL I’m reminded of the hill billies that moved into the new house and were admiring the “autermatic foot warsher”.
