Copy and paste this link into your browser to view the the D.I.Y. Lillipad Squat Stool video
Watch the video and decide if you (or your woodworker) have the basic tools and materials necessary to make the Lillipad squat stool. The video contains woodworking tips for the beginner, and has subtitles. The video lets you know what you are in for before you purchase the plans.

The plans have 5 pages of more detailed information, they are easily referenced, have easy to read drawings, and space to add your toilet's dimensions. The combination of the two makes the building process easy to follow.

When you are ready to download the plans that this video supplements
purchase the plans on the D.I.Y Plans page.
