« Part 14: I've always wanted a ceiling like that. Part 15 of Mikros Kosmos series Part 16: Tedium »

I made a bathtub.

This was a chunk of mystery wood. I cut it down to size and milled out the interior. I painted the interior white.

I played around with veneer. I’ve never used this before… not sure how I feel about it – would perhaps be nicer to work with on larger materials and/or blocks without tub holes in them.. lol

I used some purpleheart for trim. I’m going to do some fancy trim to this.. not quite sure what. But it’s far from done. I think the mix -and- match feeling suits the rest of the room.

The tub is glued into the floor and wall, and the trim is glued into everything. I need to source down some hardware for the faucets.

In other news, I did some work on the attic. I put some trim in there which I’m pretty pleased with. And then I sealed the floor with epoxy. Wow! Such an impact. I have found my ballroom floor.
I loved it so much I already did a layer on the bottom floor. It should be cured by morning.

Not quite sure what the next step is. :)

Good thing the bathroom is on the second floor, Lis- or you would need curtains!

I can see the reflection off the ballroom floor in the attic. WOW !!
The tub looks cool. I like the mix and match of the room.
Looks like wenge veneer on the tub, did you get any splinters ?
That’s the only thing I don’t like about the wenge, ouch.
What did you use to glue on the veneer ?
All in all the house is coming along great : )

OOhhh! It is so nice! That tub is great! I always wanted one like that. I think it is coming along wonderfully. And the attic floor – wow! The shine is incredible. The little mice may slip up there if they don’t watch their step! You have made so much progress so quickly. It probably doesn’t feel quick to you, but to us looking on it seems like it is just rolling along. What a masterpiece!
