Building an outdoor sauna: finishing the interior

After finishing building the outdoor sauna, you need to deal with the interior. This is an important step because you want to feel comfortable.

Tools and Materials Needed:

  • Wall cleaning solution
  • Masking tape
  • Stain
  • Cotton rags or cut up T-shirts
  • Natural bristle brushes
  • Paint gun

The first step in finishing the interior is cleaning it up.

You can use a wood grain cleaning solution.

The next step is to cover any cracks in the wood so that you can apply the stain. For the stain you can use whether a rag or a brush. Some stains can be just sprayed on the walls.

Spray On Staining Options

  • if you choose to spray the paint, be careful that the paint gun is in the light viscosity position.
  • if you have selected a thick pigment paint, than it’s better to thin it up.
  • if you have multiple cans of paint, mix them up in a bigger container to be sure you’ll keep the same color.

Now you can apply the stain. Sometimes it’s necessary to put on a second coat of stain. Complete the finishing with varnish, wood polish or shellac to preserve the stain.
