A sauna firebox: planned and being made

Here is a look at a firebox I’m building for a sauna.  Below are two short videos, showing the initial planning and the firebox as almost complete. 

I used old kiln shelves for the horizontal top of the firebox and the flame-wrapping structure above it.
I’ll post another entry when this is all done.  It should look quite different by then.

  1. Hey! I'm glad to stop by your site and know more about mason. This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about mason in your area.
    Fixer masons specialize in the fixing of stones onto buildings, using lifting tackle, and traditional lime mortars and grouts. Sometimes modern cements, mastics and epoxy resins are used, usually on specialist applications such as stone cladding. Metal fixings, from simple dowels and cramps to specialised single application fixings, are also used. The precise tolerances necessary make this a highly skilled job.
    We use the best materials in the industry and provide you with a variety of options to choose from like natural stone and rock displays.

  2. When I read your blog, I was so excited on the result of your sauna and I was glad to see the development in your preceding posts. Using red bricks for the firebox was a great choice and I can see how tough it is to make a sauna. Good job, Peter and I hope you’re enjoying your sauna experience. :D
