This hot tub surround is made from Western Red Cedar. 8 panels were cut and assembled in the shop using a template made from the tub and then assembled on site. The front panel has a door cut into it for access to the controls underneath. Just used a simple stainless window latch and handle to keep a clean look. I was satisfied with the results and so was the customer. It really made this 12 year old hot tub look like new again. The old cabinet was made from plywood and had just rotted over time. I think this cedar will give years of beauty! Thanks for looking and commenting!

I haven’t been able to warm up to hot tubs since I heard someone describe them as “old people soup”. EEEEWWWW!!!!! :D

However, the surround looks very well done.
