In two days I'm going to buy sauna. I've heard that I can choose sauna
walls to be made of aspen or nordic spruce. Which is better?
What king of wood is better for seats: abache or aspen?
Please, could you answer my questions?
Thank you in advance
When I build saunas, I use western red cedar. My second choice would be
spruce. I have not heard of people using aspen so I can't speak to that.
That being said, I have heard of people using spruce that complained of the
wood being uncomfortably hot. I haven't had that problem with cedar.
Aunt and Uncles was all cedar and was heated with wood. A steel can
similar to what aircraft parts used to come in (around 15-20gal) was
equipped with a small door accessible from outside and of course a
chimney etc. This was surrounded by large river rocks encased in a
larger cedar box and a concrete base for the entire sauna. When they
wanted steam some water dumped on the rocks surrounding the steel can
did the trick. Worked great, wet or dry, and used very little wood.
