I have always had a standard ceramic bath tub, and in some places there’s only been a shower. So this is something I haven’t even thought of before: a wooden bathtub.

These are a specialty home item. And there are a number of styles. One of the ones you probably noticed though, are those curved ones. They are hardwood tubs made by a company called NK Woodworking.

According to NK Woodworking, “We handcraft our wood bathtubs from distinctive sustainable domestic and exotic hardwoods. Each is then finished with a specialized clear composite barrier for unmatched durability and longevity.

“These wood bathtubs offer you the luxury of fine art furniture as the centerpiece of your bathroom. Not to mention an unparalleled soak. From our studio in Seattle, Washington, we can ship our custom wood bathtubs anywhere in the world.”

NK is from Seattle, and is run by a 27-year old former boat builder. They run around from $15,000 to $30,000. Some of the other pictures show things that can be done for those with a different idea of spending money.
