Thanks Everyone for the warm welcome everyone! I just a young guy that is a beginning woodworker. So if anyone has any tips and suggestions let me know!! The project that I am working on now is a wooden tub. I am using 8/4 red oak and building what is essentially big square box. Right now I am glueing up the wood together to make all the sides.
Now I know what your thinking. Wood and water don’t mix. In the past when people have built wooden tubs it was left completely finished. The water would swell to make a water tight seal. In my case after I build my tub box I will put on several layers of epoxy.
If I am unsure of the strength of the joints I may epoxy a sheet of fiberglass around the whole thing. Kinda like a kayak. Actually I am thinking of this as an anti-boat. Hold the water in don’t let it out!
(Works well on the kiteboards I have built)
I have seen some great looking projects on here and looking forward to seeing some more!
