Anyone who's ever dealt with wood rot will tell you wood has no place in the bathroom, especially not as a vessel for water; but Swiss manufacturer Ammonitum gets around the wood vs. water problem with special manufacturing techniques.
Ammonitum's wooden sinks, bathtubs and toilet seats, after being glued up and shaped, are heavily polished, soaked in mordant solution, and covered in a minimum of ten layers of varnish. Finally they're coated in high-gloss NanoCover, a waterproof Danish solution used for everything from marine applications to anti-graffiti coatings. The whole process takes about twelve weeks, and the results are pretty darn eye-popping. Hit the jump to see more.
