Knotty Red Cedar is a close relative of Western Red Cedar, genetically speaking. However, the Knotty cedar tree is much smaller and so the lumber is quite knotty, compared to the very clear lumber of  Clear Red Cedar. The wood is light weight and so is weaker than clear red cedar. The grain is straight; shrinkage is low and decay resistance is very high. It has a pleasant odor and is dried at very low temperatures. 

Our distinctive barrel cedar saunas offer both unique beauty and practical advantages to your sauna experience, and are an exciting, lasting investment that generations can enjoy.

The barrel design reduces the heating area by 30% and improves the circulation, without compromising on space for sauna bathers. The cedar walls, 1½” thick, provide natural insulation and structural strength.

Sauna diameters are 6 or 7 feet, and lengths are your choice of 6, 7 or 8 feet.
