I want to create a bathtub out of a 2' x 2' x 6' stock tank. Lining it
with cedar. How would I go about adhering the cedar to the metal stock
tank. Making sure the tub was sealed and be able to easily clean the
inside of the tub. Many thanks to anyone who can help.
If it was me I would make a tub or "bucket" to fit down in the stock tank,
cover the whole thing with fiberglass, and let the weight of the cedar tub
hold it in place. I don't think I would trust any wood or adhesive under
those conditions my self. It seems like a lot of trouble for what would be
an inferior bathtub in IMO. A solid cedar bathtub with out the stock tank
would be real nice though.

I wouldn't: If the cedar leaks, you've trapped water behind it
long-term and even cedar will rot.
If the cedar doesn't leak, why do you need the metal tank?
Either take an apprenticeship in Japan and learn the appropriate joinery
to make one without leaks, or else get down to a boat chandlers and
stock up on _polyurethane_ mastic (Sikkaflex in Europe).
