Bathtub Tray File

Does anyone here have a simple bathtub tray file on Easel that they wouldn’t mind sharing? My wife’s birthday is coming up, and I thought this might be something nice to make for her. If you’re not familiar with what I’m talking about, it’s simply a 1x10 that goes across the bath and has pockets for small candles, a tablet, and a slot for a wine glass. I am not opposed to making my own. I just wanted to see what type of unique designs people have come up with. Thanks in advance!

Very considerate of you.
Its like you said: very simple. Just measure the items that need to fit and work it up in easel. Also will depend on your tub.

I’m working something up now and will post it when it’s finished. Hopefully it isn’t too bad. Maybe others can get some use out of it.

Do you guys think 1/4" is too deep for the tablet pocket, or will that work? I don’t want it to be top heavy. The tablet has about 1/2" from the edge of the tablet to the bottom of the viewable screen.

I had a busy weekend, so I am just now getting around to sharing this. It’s nothing spectacular, but my limited design abilities came up with this. I’ll have to zero out the writing and use the 1/8 bit for the circles and wine glass slot. Then, I’ll zero everything else out and v-carve the writing. If I use the v-bit for the detail pass, it will try to cut the wine glass slot and create havoc. Here’s the link. Let me know if you guys have suggestions. I haven’t messed with the speeds yet.

I created this a while ago in Fusion 360 and never actually made one. You’re welcome to it.

The first workpiece is the main shape of the caddy. The second workpiece is the saying / decoration using a V bit.

I finally got around to making the tray. I decided to remove the large circle on the left side of the file I shared. I figured a drink could still be put there regardless. It’s a “less is more” approach. I’ve attached some pictures. The wood is the cheap knotty pine you can buy at Lowe’s or Home Depot. It’s a 1x10 board cut to 38" long
(we have a big tub) and it’s stained with a dark walnut stain. I bought some metal cabinet handles to make picking it up easier. I finished it with Helmsman spar urethane just in case it comes into contact with water.
