So I have a toddler (3.5 year old) that is working on potty training, and my wife bought her a stool to allow her more independence. Only problem, is that the top of the stool was not really wide enough for her to use it with confidence. So I came up with this design based on the concept of the Squatty Potty. Used scrap 2x from my neighbor’s Halloween project 2 yrs ago (yes I am a hoarder). Cut out the curve on the bandsaw.

The little girl had a blast using the orbital sander and placing the screws. She loves the stool and can now get to the toilet on her own with confidence.

Nice project and I just have to say your daughter is very cute. Kids that age are just special, too bad they have to grow up to be teenagers. :-)
