    Finished (for the most part)! I made this one using smaller proportions because it's for my kids. It will soon be raised another 1/2" once I attach the four felt swivel glides that I purchased at Walmart. Since I printed the templates at home and had the wood, wood filler, stain, polyurethane (liquid plastic), and tools, I only spent around $7 total! ... a couple dollars each for the glides and sandpaper and three-ish for the wood glue.I used a handheld Craftsman jig saw so the cuts weren't perfect (not that I was looking for perfection). To correct mismatches and imperfections, I simply alternated between sanding and using wood filler. For security, I opted to use four small lengths of dowels (approximately 1") to secure the legs to the foot board. In addition, I stained the ...

In addition, I stained the surfaces with Minwax and applied a couple nice coats of the liquid plastic (three on the foot board) to seal and protect. Consquently, I believe it should be quite durable moving forward and it looks nice!I'll plan to make another (full size) for us adults in the near future. Thanks for creating this Instructable!

    Sounds complicated...plus, wouldn't that require a paid version of Acrobat? Is a method/download to print this from a typical home printer something you could offer as an additional option?Trying to keep this who thing affordable and less than what I would pay for a real squatty potty.

    Would it be possible to print these on a standard printer and piece them together in some fashion? My local printer is asking nearly $10 to print.
