Before building our lovable loo I acquired 4 identical used food grade pails with handles and lids knowing that I could get more from the same source. This gave me the measurement I needed to build the frame the correct height so the pail protruded about 1/2 an inch above the finished frame.

I was surprised when I increased my number of pails to notice that the new ones were not all identical in height. About one in four of these pails is 3/4 of an inch shorter than my original four pails. Luckily I built for the taller pails so to use the shorter I keep a piece of scrap 3/4 inch plywood in the frame to put under the shorter pails. It's nice when the luck you have is good, not bad.
