I made a home made potty seat for the toilet

Bella is telling us when she's gone poop now, asking for a diaper change. Time to see if she's ready to potty train now.

She won't sit on the toilet and go (You will need to ask Katie the story on that one when you get a chance). Theory is she feels like she will fall in.

So I made this seat out of a 1/4 inch acrylic I had gotten it to use as a face for my router table. I guess it has other uses now.

I probably shouldn't mention that I dreamed up this design…

In album

Laying out the plexiglass to trace the toilet to make the potty seat.

This is the only circle bit I have. It’ doesn’t work very well, but it got the job done and it only cost a couple of bucks.

The edges where sanded on my belt sander after I cut them. This leaves a smooth but tetured surface.

Gotta LOVE flame polishing acrylic sheeting.

Leaves the edge very smooth, clear, and no micro-cracks to start a big crack in the future.

Letting the inspector examine my workmanship. See the oblong shaped ‘business end’?

This snaps on for easy cleaning. This is just a nylon strap with snaps on each end.

It closes flat and makes it look professional.
