Homemade towel warmer
One thing that's been on my wish list for the 6 years my wife and I have had out hot tub is a towel warmer. We soak pretty much every night from October through April and rarely use the tub in the warmer months. I have a row of 6 wrought iron hanging plant holders that we use to hold robes, but when the air temp is 10 degrees, the towels get a tad bit chilly. Warm towels, while not a necessity, would be a nice little luxury.
I've looked online for outdoor towel warmers, but they tend to start at around $2,000, have more features than I want or need, and no one seems to have them in stock. At $2,000, warm towels is a luxury I can't afford.
I decided to make my own. I figure a simple wood box with a small 150 watt strip heater (or even a light bulb) in the bottom under a false floor would do the trick. Before I reinvent the wheel, I was wondering if anyone else made their own warming box. If so, does it work OK? Is there anything you would change about it?
