Our bathtub caddy is made from wooden sticks used for years in hanging tobacco. In tobacco farming, the plants are hung from these sturdy sticks and hung in tobacco barns while being fired. Fired meaning that a fire is built in the bottom of the barn to dry the tobacco plants. The firing process is where the sticks obtain their rich dark color. The wood is all different kinds of local wood but the color is pretty much the same. It's construction is pretty simple and it sits nicely across the tub.

My darling husband made me the one pictured for Christmas 2011 and I have loved and enjoyed it so much. He is so talented. Him having grown up tobacco farming with his Father and Grandfather where they used these sticks year after year, only makes the shelf more special.

We live in Tennessee and our family no longer farms tobacco. But if it came down to it they still know how.

This tub measures 31 inches across, from outside to outside. The caddy pictured measures 37 inches long by 11 inches. I wanted a little overhang and have room for it on the wall side of the tub.

**When ordering, please measure your tub from outside edge to outside edge and add two or three inches on each side for overhang, if your space allows for it, and choose how long your shelf will need to be exactly when ordering.** Depths are between 11 and 12 inches.

PLEASE READ ALL DESCRIPTIONS

We cannot be held responsible for incorrect measurements on your part. I have only tried this caddy on our clawfoot tub. I don't believe it will work on a to-the-wall tub unless you have several inches for the caddy to rest on the wall side. The caddy simply sits on the edges of the tub. It does not attach. Some coloring may vary. The tobacco sticks are semi smooth but they are wooden, we will not be held responsible if the caddy happens to scratch your tub.

Due to the fact that these tobacco sticks are around 100 years old they are not all the exact same dimensions around. Meaning that our shelves are rustic and are not always perfectly level in spots. We pick the very best sticks from what we have available for each shelf. We also do not apply stain, sanding or a finish to the sticks or the ends of the cut sticks as it would take away from the rustic, farm feel of the shelves and what we offer. Some sticks retain a slight tobacco smell which is unlike the smell of actual cigarette smoke but more of tobacco itself. Mine wore off in a couple of weeks but I can still get a scent of it when the shelf gets wet for a moment. Shelves are for ornamental use only. Do not buy this shelf for sitting purposes.
