Wood Burning Hot Tubs
Handcrafted by foresters, in Scotland
Our tubs are handmade in Forres using larch - an attractive, deciduous conifer sustainably grown in Scotland for its strong, durable qualities.
It takes almost 1m3 of raw timber to make up a single 1.6m tub which is similar to a circular half barrel or mash-tun in construction with jointed vertical staves. No adhesives or fixings are used: the staves are jointed to interlock and are compressed by welded stainless steel bands. Once the tub is filled, the wood expands like the timbers of a boat to create water-tight joints. Two flanges in the tub’s side carry cold water down to the external wood-burning stove which, when fired, circulates hot water back to the tub by convection. The tub is designed to sit outside, on any flat surface and other than access with a garden hose or rainwater system to fill, needs no connection.
