The fart stool…
Prutskammel in Danish.

Hi LJ’s,
This is a small foot stool for my allotment house toilet.
No need to be in a coma now, we all do it…
But if you are one of those who can’t talk about going to the toilet, stop reading now.
(I made the double spacing so you have no excuse not to stop, from now i’s your own fault).

1. The fart stool.
2. Ugly Betty… I made these legs first and found them terrible.
3. A series of saw cuts.
4. Giving it a curve.
5. Looks like a stool, still a little ugly, but it will do.
6. Gave the surface a wavy texture, so one will not fall off.

As said, this stool is for my allotment house, more precise for the toilet, because even though there’s only a campingtoilet, one still need to go there, most of us once a day and most of us doing it wrong.
How can you go to the toilet wrong?

Evolution is the word, we did not use sitting toilets for so long and in fact in large parts of the world they don’t do it yet. The sitting toilet makes us sit in a 90° angle, this locks up our intestines, for thousands of years we just sat down and did the thing, wen squatting we are closer to 35° between legs and upper body and this opens up.
I think you got it now and if not, you can read more HERE.

I’ll spare you any pictures of the stool in use, but once you have gone down this road, you will never go back and for me it really helped, to get rid of a lot of stomach pains.

(If you feel insulted and read this, all I can say, I told you to stop reading 23 lines and a illustration ago).

Hope it can be to some inspiration, a smile and perhaps even a nice free fart…

Parece práctico… Las cuñas de las patas no deberían ir en vertical en relación con el asiento?

ramon, thank you. Why should they not go in that direction, due to the fear that it will split? I thought when they were that much away from the edge, it would be no problem…

one of the GREAT benefits of this site is the educational aspect but for me, it was always saw dust. But I must say, I’m always open to learning of all sorts – Thanks for posting

First off nice job on the design, it will serve the purpose well. I see these getting more popular all the time and even here people talking about them. Good idea to take care of #1 when you’re doing #2

Great job. OK I admit that when I saw the project title I was expecting a joke about whoopee cushions or the noise the stool makes when scooted across a tile floor. I was not expecting a lesson in evolution and gastro-intestinal disorders, but I found it educational and entertaining so thank you.
