  • Oval hot tubs are individually crafted from the finest clear, all heart, vertical grain western red cedar. Alaskan yellow cedar and teak are also available. Occasionally we also have a supply of Port Orford Cedar, aka hinoki, with which to make smaller oval soaking hot tubs.

    The oval hot tubs are constructed from the finest full-sawn 2 x 4, or 2 x 6 clear, all heart, vertical grain wood. Both the staves and the bottom are a full 1-34" net thickness (teak 1-1/4"), making them extremely stable and considerably thicker than most others hot tubs. The extra thickness adds greatly to the life-span, and virtually eliminates any possibility of future warping of the wood. Most importantly though, the extra thickness give our hot tubs up to twice the insulating value of some other thinner tubs.

    The tubs are supported by 4 x 6 chine joists and held together by 12" steel bands, roll threaded at each end, and include a cast iron coupler, two stainless steel nuts and most importantly a polyethylene sheathing which protects the band from rusting.

  • The largest oval hot tub we offer is 8' long by 6' wide. On the other end of the scale, we've also made individual soaking tubs smaller than 40" by 30".

    Typically the larger oval hot tubs are 4' tall, but 3' or 5' tall is not uncommon. The smaller soaking oval tubs are rarely more than 4' tall, and frequently as short as 2-1/2' (24" deep).
