I’ve been looking at various wood bathtub options, including Mitja Narobe's wooden bathtub, and a commercial wood bathtub that was remaindered at our local ultra high-end kitchen & bath store (but just a few inches too big for our bathroom), and the Laguna wood bathtubs and…

I’ve started to think about using boat building techniques to build a veneer laid up cold-molded bathtub. I’m thinking about starting with the bathroom sink, using epoxy resin and laid up wood veneer layers, maybe something like the ACCACIO sink. Haven’t figured out how I’m going to clamp the glue-ups yet, may have to develop some vinyl bag making skills to do a vacuum bagging that fits a relatively bulky shape.

But I’ve gotta think it’s possible…
