Tubs

Concrete Bathtubs

Over at Plastolux they covered a conversion from a contractor’s shop into a single-family residence. It’s an impressive project, and I do recommend taking a look. Instead of showing you the same pics, I’m going to just highlight the thing that jumped out at me: this concrete bathtub. Mainly, how would one would replicate that particular design, and is it a feasible DIY job?

Now, usually the internet is ever so helpful, but I didn’t really find a solid reference out there. There’s an example of how someone made a concrete soaking tub, which is sort of helpful, and a seemingly oversimplification of the suggested process here, but nothing that really inspires confidence in making the sort of nice curve that’s shown above. I suppose it’s a project for only brave folks. If you know of additional resources, please comment or email.

(And, yes, buying a bathtub would be way easier, but concrete looks so much more bespoke in that lovely modern industrial way.)
