Incredible Wooden Bathtub




Have any of you ever seen a wooden bathtub before?! I didn't even know they existed! Inspired by the comfort of an antique armchair and the sweeping sheer of a sailboat, Bath in Wood of Maine has been crafting wooden bathtubs for three years. This particular double bathtub featured in Design New England is made from a deep-sealed Honduran mahogany. Imagine how long the water would stay warm in that! (And what fun kids would have pretending it was a boat!) Oh, and the bead-board wainscoting is painted Benjamin Moore's Silver Marlin. How could I forget! To learn more about these unique wooden tubs, head over here!

That's amazing (and so unique)!

Tanya @ Dans le Townhouse said...

Wow! I certainly had no idea a tub could be made of wood. That stain looks so great with the pale turquoise walls. Such a crisp, calm room.

Alexandra said...

Wow! What a statement piece!!!

Monica said...

Holy moly, that tub is stunning!

L. said...

Wow...this is just breathtaking!

Erin @ The Impatient Gardener said...

The best thing about a wooden bath tub is that I would presume you MUST use it regularly in order for it to stay water tight. What a great excuse to take a bath.

Karena said...

Erin I have never seen anything like it!

Fabulous for a lake or mountain retreat...would you oil the interior I wonder?

OMG!

diane@onlinefabricstore said...

Wow is all I can say. Certainly better than the large porcelain "boat" that inhabits most of our bathrooms. Wonder if you can get splinters in your "bootie"?

VictoriaArt said...

Absolutely gorgeous! I see white sheets in my mind, like in the 18Th century!

mustang said...

Mmmmm, Silver Marlin is a delicious color! Looks very much like Rainwashed.

Thanks Erin.

Oh my word! That is one incredibly beautiful tub! Sure I knew they had wooden tubs way back when, but I did not know that wooden tubs existed in this century. I can honestly say that I would love to have one!

The Sterling Cherub said...

Well I thought for sure a wood bathtub would be made of teak, but that mahogany is very pretty and the tub is UNREAL it is so gorgeous! Just a real showpiece. I'd love to be soaking in there right now.

Wonder how you care for a wood bathtub? How do you clean it? Hmmmm.

Hi,
The interior of the house is just opossum and i want to live in this dream home.

As beautiful as this tub is, Honduras Mahogany is a protected species as most mahogany, especially from South America, is. There are other companies that make wooden bathtubs that you can find on the internet. They sell them here in the UK.
I think when we design our homes, we really ought to look at the bigger picture.

Gorgeous!!

Aaron@Twin Construction said...

Caley said...

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com said...

That bath tub takes my breath away :)

Anne B said...

This is amazing! Any idea how much one of these would cost? I assume it would be a fortune since they don't even list approximate prices on their website. Love it.

Erin said...

Anne,

The magazine article said they start at $8,000. Not cheap, but each one is made to order and crafted by hand. So very pretty!

kathy said...

by far the coolest bathtub i have ever seen!

plumbing said...

Unless you have decided to opt for a free standing bath then the question of choosing the right bath panel for your bath is one that you are likely to have to consider. Most conventional baths will have panels, as these are used to hide all the rather unsightly pipe work and the underside of the bath.
