Similar Construction

These end back rests are of similar construction to the top bench back rest.

I used seven slats like the top bench back rest.

Situational awareness “One”, Mark “Zero!”


After sitting with these a bit, we decided to recline them 12 degrees. I cut the angles at the top and bottom of the frame with a Japanese pull saw. During installation, I fastened the bottom to the bench and the top to the wall with screws. These are very comfortable now!


This completes the furnishing of the hot room of the sauna suite. Follow this link to view a short video of the completed sauna.


I’ll build benches, back rests, and a table out of ash for the changing/shower room.
