I made a WOOD HOT TUB out of 2x6s

I made DIY WOOD HOT TUB out of cedar 2x6s and it was really easy! We also built an DIY Outdoor Entertainment Center using MSE Audio’s Rockustics Cherry Bomb Outdoor speakers: learn more about them here: http://bit.ly/cherrybombhm This video is sponsored by MSE Audio and we are really excited to work with these high fidelity outdoor speakers that can be installed directly into or on top of the ground. We used a Goal Zero Yeti 400 power pack to power this system and the TV this way we don’t need to run wires underground. These Goal Zero systems are best way I have found to easily take electrical loads off the grid. This cedar hot tub is a surprisingly easy DIY project that only requires basic straight cuts of 2x6s and a couple gallons of flex seal.

    Don’t poop in the wooden tube. Please.

  3. Fred Douglass on March 16, 2022 at 5:22 pm

    It’s beautiful…. but I’d imagine horribly uncomfortable? Maybe add some boards width ways contoured like a lazy boy? Lol. It would help brace the outward force as well. Its beautiful tho…

  4. Brian Foskey on March 16, 2022 at 5:23 pm

    Awesome!! I love it and have this on my build list for the new property I am in process of moving to. I would like to build one as you have here, however I would also like to build this inside the new bathroom remodel also. What is your opinion of how the wood would react to soap as I would be using the inside one as a large soaking bathtub? A thought…if the soap would cause damage what is your opinion regarding coating the wood with a surface coating of things such as poly, epoxy, fiberglass, etc?

    They built an awesome personal Hot Tub just for them. The title says nothing about building a cheap rinky dinky hot tub to save a ton of money. Sit back and enjoy the video 👍🏼👍🏼😎

    If you’re going to make a commercial for clamps maybe you should do the project right.

    Do you put a lid on that thing when it is not in use????

  12. ChimeraGaming on March 16, 2022 at 5:38 pm

    Gonna attract so much mould

  13. Smoothest Bassist on March 16, 2022 at 5:38 pm

    I wish I had a trust fund like this guy so I could waste money like this lol

  14. Brandon Maynard on March 16, 2022 at 5:38 pm

    Roughly what was the cost of everything needed, and total build time?

    So how is that tub aging? I have doubts about that build concept.

    Add a lid for a DIY Coffin!

  18. Travel Abroad on March 16, 2022 at 5:43 pm

    I’m amazed at how many woodworkers don’t know that when you clamp up large projects, you need a top support board to keep it from bowing. That would have saved you a bunch of time and extra steps to get your project back to a flat surface.

  19. Anthony Yates on March 16, 2022 at 5:44 pm

    What about toxins leaking out over time from the chemicals in the products you used ?

  20. EelingStudios on March 16, 2022 at 5:44 pm

    He may as well have chopped dow a giant redwood and hollowed it out. A shocking amount of timber used there…

  21. Tate Dillow on March 16, 2022 at 5:44 pm

    Whoa. Does it take a full day to fill that thing with the dribble from that faucet? lol. What? Foam. Use foam. Cheaper, lighter, lasts longer, water proof, insulates… This is silly.

  22. João Marreiros on March 16, 2022 at 5:47 pm

    Seen this being done, but using tar as sealant, it withstands the passing of time and humidity better, with wood joints reinforced with screws. Some sealants can also add unwanted chemicals into the water where you bathe.

  23. ba sook on March 16, 2022 at 5:47 pm

    why not used epoxy??

  24. Daniel Heffner on March 16, 2022 at 5:49 pm

    about 500 with the flex seal now

  25. No one in Particular on March 16, 2022 at 5:51 pm

    Why is no one talking about how freaking jacked this dude is

  26. Terry Matthews on March 16, 2022 at 5:52 pm

    I really want to make one of these for my bathroom. Any suggestions?

  27. João Marreiros on March 16, 2022 at 5:52 pm

    Surprisingly, a lair of tar in between the joints and in the outside wont pollute the water, but silicone? Well, I wouldn´t use it.
    Anyway, there is a nice, clean work in this video, and the care using the clamps is the sign of someone that is trying to do a good work.

  28. syknet creations on March 16, 2022 at 5:52 pm

    i dont even get why you would want to consider this, wood rots whit water so no long life at all for a shity price, if you buy a normal hot tub you have better quality and way longer life, so only the consideration is a not so smart idea to say it nicely

  29. Brad Giffen on March 16, 2022 at 5:53 pm

    Please make this out of marine plywood. This is beautiful. Have you thought about a waterproof membrane in-between the two layers…. Like red-gaurd that way no one would see it and it would give you added water proofing. Just a thought . I’m going to make this this summer! Did you make a cover for this …. I’d love to see that video

  30. Winston Veluz on March 16, 2022 at 5:54 pm

    i wasnt expecting a bloody ripped ass dude, jesus

  31. Canofwupass on March 16, 2022 at 5:55 pm

    Goddamn! Forget the tub! How did you build those ABS?! I need to know now! LOL!

  32. Mary Antonio on March 16, 2022 at 5:56 pm

    Thanks for this video! Square or rectangle makes a better hot tub anyway. Them round hot tubs just reduce the length of the thing. You have to have a very large diameter just to fit your whole body in. I want to be able to lay my full body out flat in the tub.

  33. chad osborne on March 16, 2022 at 5:57 pm

    Jessie, so funny!

  34. Nathan Barry on March 16, 2022 at 5:58 pm

    Does anyone have any idea if this project is still holding up?

  35. Hol¥Diver on March 16, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Think we all know the cost of lumber so yea saving some face .

  36. Mos on March 16, 2022 at 6:01 pm

    Very cool project. But I wouldn’t use wood to build a tub. Hard to clean up the dirt after a while …

  37. Gah Bah on March 16, 2022 at 6:05 pm

    Cool, but is flexseal safe to bathe in? What about the coat the boards have on them from the mill you’re supposed to sand off before staining?

  38. Wolfgang Reichl on March 16, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    That’s way too easy; anyone could do it. Clearly not for me, I’m a real guy, I’ll do it the traditional way an sovereignly give up after five minutes. That’s the way it’s done!

  39. Dana Shay on March 16, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    Wow! THAT was freakin’ brilliant!

    Is no one going to mention that a chipmunk walked right up to Jessie for a snack?

    No where did you mention that your sis is a f*ckin Disney princess hand feeding the squirrel at 6:41…

  46. Lea remington on March 16, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Follow up on my project since o.p. Did t do one for theirs. As mentioned in my 2 earlier posts i followed the sameplan and materiels, carefully sealing each board inside and out and inbetween and allowing proper drying time. It leaked so i resealed it again inside withe clear flexseal, fiberglass cloth and a roller. It still leaks.badly. Cost of cedar, ss screws and 2 gallons of flexseal was well over 600.00 not including the pump, heater and plumbing. A horrid waste of money. I even built a 12×12 sunroom with floor to ceiling double pane windows. Nice room. P.o.s. Waste or time and money for the tub. My advise: buy one.

  47. Truly Blessed on March 16, 2022 at 6:17 pm

    The end result is super pretty, but this must surely be the most expensive hot tub on Earth, given the use of cedar. It would be nice to see how it’s lasted since it was made. Is it still in good condition and did leaks develop over time or is it still watertight? I’m sure you used cedar for weather and water rot resistance. I wonder if another, cheaper wood would work if all surfaces were Flex-sealed (multiple layers)??

    Seems pure straight forward..simple tools. Thanks for sharing!! 🍻💦

  50. Capellix on March 16, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    Wouldnt using treated lumber be bad for a hot tub?
