Instructables.com and the Live Aligned blog offer instructions for building wooden platforms similar to the Squatty Potty. The Instructables tutorial also includes a downloadable pattern for a 3-D printed version.
The Squatty Potty is a plastic or wood platform designed to fit around the base of a toilet. The platform raises the user's feet, resulting in a more natural squatting position for elimination. The Instructables website offers an in-depth tutorial for the Bourgeoise Toilet Stool, a handmade version of the Squatty Potty made of poplar. The Live Aligned blog includes step-by-step photographs for building a simpler platform design with a decoupage finish at LiveAligned.ca.
