Centuries ago, the Venetians crafted ships by hand, with the express purpose of protecting the precious cargo inside by keeping the water outside. Times change. After years spent working in the shipbuilding yards of Venice, carpenter Andrea Rossetti decided to keep the water inside. His eye-catching wooden bathtubs are made of solid beechwood planks that are steam-bent, planed, and joined with a high-tech epoxy--then coated with the same type of resin that was used on the hulls of the boats that he used to build. Rossetti is confident that his sturdy, alluringly rich-grained, free-standing tub is far more durable than its enamel or metal counterparts, which can chip or rust. $5,000. So far, showroom only in Italy. L.W.B. Lavorazione del Legno, 40 Via Alessandro Volta; 39-02-908-6624; www.touchitaly.com.
