compound miter saw
Table saw
Table saw (with genuine cedar sawdust)

Other than that, it’s pretty basic stuff:

Let’s take a short tour showing tools used to build this sauna.  I promise. it’s a short video.

  1. if you only have the dollars to spend on one ‘fancy’ tool, my vote is the chop saw, especially if you are doing framing work. between framing, siding, paneling, benches, etc., it is indispensable.

  3. If you add a Paslode cordless finishing nailer to the compound sliding miter saw and compact table saw, you could rule the world.

  4. Michael: Agreed! I’d say those are the big 3 tools for sure. The cordless finish nailer is the right tool for a backyard sauna build for a few key reasons, as i’m sure you’ve experienced: 1. Easy to use and control, 2. No cords to get tangled within, 3. No compressor to bang shins upon.
