You're welcome, Joe--I found that in some of my Aunt's old books... She lived in AZ during the 60's and part of the 70's--I suspect she brought it back to WV from there. Hope it will be of use to you!

Hey Wayne,

Thanks for the surprise package in the mail - the compost book. It will make interesting reading.

Out in the country side, in Ukraine, I saw a number of these made out of wood--some of them very nasty! What I would have given for a sawdust toilet!

The photo is almost identical to the squat toilets I saw in China last year (2006) in virtually every public place (gas stations, public toilets, etc.).

Heck, when I first started, all I did was buy a $5 toilet seat that I just kinda set on top of the bucket. Not perfect but I worked just fine till I managed to fasten together some scrap bits of wood to make our toilet frame for the seat to attach to and the bucket to sit in.

Speaking of 'squat toilets'--here (once again) is a picture of a squat toilet in the NEW train station in Kiev, Ukraine. This was taken in Summer, 2001...

Speaking of squat toilets, this message came to me today:

Consider this information regarding squatting in relation to the saw dust toilet, for the larger picture of proper body function to proper body postion for elimination of our resources. See this website for Nature's Platform. http://www.naturesplatform.com/index.html

In our school and organisation's campus in the Indian Himalayas, we have made portapotties to use whenever we have a big function with a lot of extra people. We dig a 3 foot hole near the fruit trees, and put a portable outhouse on top. We keep a shovel with it so people can layer with the soil that came out of the hole in the first place. Tree books say that feeder roots won't go down very deep, so we keep the holes shallow, dig a few at a time, and move the portapotties when one is full. There people like a squat toilet anyway, so the structure is very simple, an iron frame, a scrap wood floor, four posts stuck on the corners of the frame, canvas walls and curtain door. Well lit and ventilated, and portable.

I found a cheap portable toilet that is the same basic design that Joe recomends. A bucket type of container with a snap on seat. Its called the "Reliance Luggable Loo" and for 12.95 a toilet its a very inexpensive way to get started without having to build one yourself.
I found it on the http://www.4outdoorfun.com/portoil.html
