Seattle Woodworker Creates Stunning Bathtubs Using Marine Technology

100

An architect of NK Woodworking, Nathie Katzoff,  is turning the wooden bathtub into a work of art, worth over $30,000!

This skilled man creates artwork from wood, and has some amazing things in his repertoire, including a background in boat building which helps him make these spectacular tubs.

The most important thing about these tubs is that the wood insulates much better than standard materials used, like porcelain or metal, so the water remains warmer for a longer period.

Each of these magnificent tubs takes hundreds of hours to craft and gleams with a composite finish that has its roots in the excellent woodworking and restoration skills of Katzoff.

He has done the seemingly impossible with exotic wood, taking his experience in wooden boat-making to bath-making, creating these impressive statement exotic wooden tubs.

He says that they are using Sapele mahogany as “the popular wood of choice” and plan to become the Steinway or Maserati of bathtubs.
