    A spa bath

    I want to build an above ground spa in the garden.
    Big enough for 4-6 people.

    Anyone do such a thing?

    Nope, I want it all above ground so I can access the bits that break.
    Possibly put a wooden wall round it.

    Meaning: a wooden platform type of border?

    You're not doing concise very well here, CMN

    So you want an outdoor bubble bath

    You mean a fence ?

    Why do you need to fit 6 people in there ?

    This is Teakdoor, we need more info.....

    Is it gonna be a regular occurrence?

    Is it for swinging ?

    Can I bring the wife and some scotch eggs ?

    Yes, you need to consider the water displacement when someone like Marmite plunges in.

    sounds to me you should lokk into using mai takiam or mai sak as material,
    they are both hardwood and they are suitble for wet environment,
    these two woods are used extensively in boats in LoS

    mai sak=teak
    mai takiam=haven't the fogiest idea

    mai sak is more expensive and harder but in my mind also more difficult
    to work with

    mai takiam would be a good choice, I think
