Taskswap- thanks for those finishes! I've used the paste wax before on a large foyer floor. It did make a good waterproof seal. Slicker 'n snot though! Don't use that seat/lid for a step stool!

Curiously, I've been looking for something to re-finish an old wooden set of bowls too. I never knew it was actually called "salad bowl finish". <feeling silly>

Its built of OSB and 2x2. I sat on it so it should be strong enough.

Wife and I spent two nights in a nature area run by South Florida Water Management. It is called Kicco and used to be a town for Kissimmee Cattle Company but is just land now.
Short story is (if you hadn't read it in my other thread) that we had no a.c. on 3 very hot and humid days. The bucket was inside with sawdust as a base and layers of Pete Sphagnum Moss between layers of #2. Urin was not separated and the good news is there was no smell !!
We came home and our son and daughter-inlaw got in the bus and did not notice any smell. Test complete and it was a success! Now to try adding extras such as coffee grounds, crumpled fresh herbs, etc.

Sounds goof. I'm going to start off with kitty litter and move onto other stuff later.

I just have to add that a simple cheap and readily available finish is a mix of Australian Bees Wax and Mineral Oil. Both are found in the pharmacy section of most big-mart stores. I use it alot for things like wooden toys, tops, bowls, furniture, ornaments, etc. Mix until it is smooth like cream. I keep it in a KFC-side container mixed and ready in my shop. It also seems to keep my iron tools from rusting.

That makes it nice when you have odd surfaces like applying it to the underside of something - if you seal natural, non-engineered wood with a finish you should always seal BOTH sides with the same finish.

With enough coats it'll seal even the most porous of woods and it's extremely durable. Not for outdoor use but it's the cat's meow inside. Food grade, too (hence salad bowl). Like some older, more classic finishes it's not meant to go on bar-top thick and last 50 years. Every few years if it's looking ratty, you scuff with steel wool and wipe on another coat. A tin will last a lifetime that way.

If you prefer a more natural look but still want an area "water"-(ahem)-proofed, try Butcher's Paste Wax. It takes more elbow grease to apply, but one tin, again, can last a lifetime. There's a rule if you use wax: "once a day for a week, once a week for a month, once a month for a year, once a year for life."

I love wood toilet seats. They're WARM.

I'm going to be going with a bucket as well. It's cheaper, lighter, greener, and saves water.

As far as humanure goes though, I don't think you should spread it directly in the garden. It needs to cook in a compost bin for a couple of years, along with all of the other things you would compost. I wouldn't put any animal poop directly on my garden either, but plenty of the food we get from the grocery store is grown that way.

Flies land on poop and then on vegetables all day long and you know what they do every time they land.
