"Timber" means thick, and these are some of the thickest western red cedar hot tubs available. With a depth of 43-1/2" and staves that are 2-1/8" thick, the Timber Tub is 1" deeper with staves 25% thicker than our most popular, 1-3/4" thick western red cedar hot tubs. The extra thickness significantly adds to the durability, life span and most importantly the overall natural insulating ability of the hot tub. Made almost exclusively for one of our European distributors, these are the hot tubs of celebrities, rock stars and yes, even royalty!
The Timber Tubs are constructed from clear, all heart, vertical grain western red cedar. The finished thickness of the staves is a full 2-1/8", while the finished thickness of the bottom is 1-3/4". This extra thickness greatly adds to the life-span, and virtually eliminates any possibility of future warping of the wood. Most importantly though, the extra thickness give our tubs up to twice the insulating value of thinner tubs. The timber Tub is the thickest traditional wooden hot tub available worldwide!
The tubs are supported by 4 x 6 chine joists and held together by 1/2" steel bands, roll threaded at each end, and come with a cast iron coupler, two stainless steel nuts and most importantly a polyethylene sheathing which protects the band from rusting.
The unique benches are of a slatted style, made from 1 x 6 clear, all heart, vertical grain wood. Each circular bench consists of four sections, that when assembled, is perfectly circular on the outside, and octagonal like on the inner side. The bench is supported by 2 x 4's, which are attached solely to the sides of the tub. With no part of the bench, or supporting structure touching the floor, your feet have complete freedom of movement underneath. All benches come complete with stainless steel screws for fastening to the tub.
The tubs come 'knocked down' and are easily shipped, and installed in any location by following our comprehensive step by step installation guide. As far as assembling the tub, most do it yourselfers can easily put them together in 1 to 2 hours (the complete system takes a bit longer). The one main installation difference with the Timber Tubs is the jet installation. Due to the thickness of the wood, the jets need to be countersunk on the outside of the tub. This is easily done with a router and rabbeting bit, cutting a 1/2" x 1/2" rabbet (it's much easier to prepare the holes for the jets before assembling the tub).
Due to the difficulty in obtaining thick enough wood for these special hot tubs, we only offer a few standard sizes, and they tend to be somewhat limited in supply. We offer 5' and 6' diameter, by 3' and 4' tall. In addition to the standard sizes, we occasionally have a few Timber Tubs slightly shorter than normal. These "short tubs" come up as we accumulate wood shorter than required for standard sizes, and rather than turn the wood into other products, we offer the "short Timber Tubs" at a discount. Please feel free to contact us and inquire as to their availability.
We can only offer our Timber Tubs in North America. If you're outside of the US or Canada, please contact our UK distributor, Riviera Hot Tubs.
