Amazing Luxury Wooden Bathtubs by NK Woodworking Seattle


With so many likes on my Facebook page for these, I thought I would investigate who makes the most amazing wooden bath tubs in the world.

NK Woodworking was Founded by artist/craftsman Nathie Katzoff.  Trained as a boat builder in Maine, for many years he restored and built numerous classic and historic wooden vessels large and small.

Out of a passion for design and art, Nathie began building one of a kind furniture, staircases and wood bathtubs. His award-winning designs are influenced by his love for the organic nature of woods, curves and colors.

Coming from a background in boat building, NK have a special understanding of the possibilities for wood and water and craftsmanship ability in terms of curves, shapes, joinery and other design features.

In 2011 the company put together the team of craftsmen that is now NK Woodworking.  In 2014 they launched the bathtub line.


In their Seattle studio they hand craft their wood bathtubs from distinctive sustainable domestic and exotic hardwoods.  These are finished with a specialized clear composite barrier for unmatched durability and longevity. These bathtubs offer you the luxury of fine art furniture to be the centerpiece of your bathroom.

All of NK’s wooden bathtubs are crafted by hand by their artisan team in the Seattle woodworking and design studio.
