I was flipping through YouTube this morning (imagine remote control and bag of chips) and stumbled upon this video of Joey from King Post Timberworks showing us how he made this cedar block bathtub. Here's a piece of furniture you don't see woodworkers making everyday so I thought you might like to check it out.
He goes through the entire process from materials used to how he designed and made the angles and curves. Pretty awesome build if you ask me. One thing to note is that he does have a HUGE CNC which he uses mostly to cut out the depression in the base and the plug hole.
I've noticed that some woodworkers get freaked out when they see someone using a CNC for a project. Mostly the ones who don't have enough money to buy one yet. Guaranteed he's probably got a cleaner and more even slope on the base than you might be able to do by hand… and in a fraction of the time. However, with some dedication and creativity you could do this with a chisel. Especially with something as soft as cedar.
Anyway, check it out:
