Bum toilet seat

Page 2 of 2  


You could replace the tank top with a wooden one, carved to the seat contour. There are vinyl trim moldings (for cars) that could affix to the tank below the top, that could be regarded as a decorative bumper. Or, you could rebuild the seat support so as to make the first ever toilet seat that flips up to the side...

Get a short roll of 3M 8672 from Aircraft Spruce and Specialty for 20 bucks. Comes black or clear. It's less than .01 inch thick and is designed to protect airplane parts from flying dust--it's very, very, very durable. Cut a little button of it and put it in the appropriate place--personally I'd use the black to make it an accent. It's thin enough that it won't interfere with operation, durable enough that you're not going to wear it out, and the rest of the roll is a handy thing to have around.

silicone doesn't go on absolutely smoothe, it can be shaved down with a razor blade. Or make a small stencil and just apply a couple of extra coats of clear finish on the spot that touches the tank.
Maple toilet seat? What luxury :o)

I'd go with a small dab of clear silicone on the tank, where the seat hits it. When cured, cut it off to a very minimal thickness and it'd never be noticed.

How about a tank cover? They seem to be out of fashion but they should be available somewhere.

marijauna leaf in it.
Apparently owning such an item was semi legal because the leaf could not be smoked.

That wear is from people leaning back. You need a smaller lid... hopefully, you don't have a 1.6 gal tank.

Thin silicon bumpers, maybe... Thin is the key word or the seat will not stay up... DAMHIKT

At the Borg one can find toilet seats & lids with slow closing lids. IIRC, the seats also close slowly and can be up in pretty much any position a few degrees short of 90. Go play with them. If you find something that meets your needs, either buy the whole thing and substitute your seat or get hold of the manufacturer and ask if they will sell you just the hardware.

Too expensive, too complicated. The obvious, most elegant solution is to toss the lid.

No, never. Give it a dignified end, by framing it and hanging it over the fireplace.

That's what happens when you fail to follow the established 'rules' for the proper use of such wood on that particular kind of a project.`
The proper use of the maple in in constructing a flapper valve and ball- float.
Remember what the traditional wisdom says -- 'Put a Tiger in your Tank!'

Maybe a piece from a pack of rubber non-slip shower floor stickons placed on the tank top at the edge would prevent the finish from wearing off the toilet lid.

For the float, yes, but for the flapper, no. Maple is too buoyant, you'd need something denser than water, such as cocobolo.
