A sauna backrest that you can cut and nail together in less than an hour

Making these sauna backrests are easy

Especially during the tongue and groove stage of building your own authentic sauna, while tools are out and some extra remnant pieces are around.

  1. 7 – 1″ x 2″ x 18″ cedar
  2. 1 – 1″ x 6″ x 18″ cedar
  3. A finish nailer or a hammer and some finish nails.


  1. Rip the 1×6 into a long triangle.
  2. Evenly space and nail 5 of the 1x2s as runners along the angle of the triangles.
  3. Nail one vertically in the back, to tie the runners together.
  4. Cut the final 1×2 to fit and nail along the base.

And while you’re at it, it’s just as easy to make two or three sauna backrests at one time.

  • keep your sauna walls clean

  1. Love the sauna back rest !
    for the novice like me… any more detailed plans? (length of triangles…also18 inches?)
    Center support looks to appear shorter…so triangles must be ~22″
