There are two types of people in this world, those that enjoy a good soak, and pure savages who do not. For those in the former group, a quality bathtub is essential to a relaxing session. If you're looking for top luxury and quality in a bathtub, look no further than the amazing wooden bathtub collection by NK Woodworking Design. The amazing wooden creations are not only just a place to get a good soak, but are practically a functioning art piece that you can put in your bathroom. If your bathroom doesn't have full length windows that look out to an enchanting forest, sweeping views of a winding river, or sky-high views of 5th avenue, your bath-fitters installation is just one Yahoo search away.

The incredible wooden bathtubs are created by artist/craftsman Nathie Katzoff, who founded NK Woodworking Design and trained as a boat builder in Maine, and gained his experience by building numerous classic and historic wooden vessels both large and small.

Taking his lover for the organic nature of woods, curves, and colors, Nathie began creating one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture, unique staircases, and luxury wooden bathtubs. What's a bathtub, but just a tiny little version of a wooden ship, right? In 2011, Nathie put together an all-star team of builders that would become NK Woodworking Design, and in 2015, they started their line of wooden bathtubs.

They offer a few different versions of wooden bathtubs that you can select from, otherwise you can opt for a full custom job, which will no doubt run you some extra cash. Their already designed versions, include the Lotus Bathtub Collection, which is more oval shaped with a short base that extends outward as it goes up, the Cube bathtub, which has straight edges and lines, and the Round bathtub, which is more circular shaped than the Lotus. They also offer a cube sink design that's also fully made from wood.

NK Woodworking takes a modern approach to their wooden bathtubs, in that they're completely maintenance-free. The unique bathtubs are completely stabilized, waterproof, and smooth to the touch. The tubs are also not affected by extreme humidity, dryness, nor are they damaged by using common liquid cleaning solutions on a daily use.

Using distinctive, sustainable, domestic, and exotic hardwoods, they craft the luxurious wooden bathtubs out of their Seattle studio. Each tub is then finished with their specialized finish system that has unmatched durability and longevity. Once installed in your home, they'll become the centerpiece of your bathroom and a perfect spot for a luxurious soak.
