    I salvaged a block of porcelain from a toilet i found in an alley. I went to a shop and paid 20 euros to get it cut to the rough shape. Then i sanded it with 500grit paper then At the last minute it didnt look quite right so i added a grip from etheopian wood. Im going to sell this and donate it to a family that I met when I was harvesting the wood. The family is very needy
