As many of you know, bathtime isn’t just for getting clean. Add a good book, a glass of wine, and your favorite candle and you’re set for a relaxing evening of self-care. It’s hard to accomplish all of this without a handy bathtub tray. That’s where this tutorial and your woodworking skills come in. I mean, seriously. Is there anything better than a long bath with a glass of wine, some candles, and a good book? The answer is no. No, there is not. My favorite thing about this new setup is that I don’t even have to hold my iPad anymore. Before, I was always afraid of dropping it, and my arms sometimes got tired from holding it up in the tub.

And guess what? You can make it. Seriously – all by yourself. You can do it! This is probably the simplest project ever, it will take you no more than a couple of hours and it’ll cost you less than a trip to the movie theater.

Materials needed:

  • 1 1X12 board, cut down to width of your tub (we used curly maple, but any wood will work here)
  • Wood glue
  • Nails + nail gun (we love this one) *NOTE: You could use a drill if you don’t have a nail gun!
  • Sandpaper + power sander (or you can do it by hand)
  • Shellac
