A cylinder-shaped sauna with elegant armrests and backrests of aspen wood. Mikael Höglund used the “outdoor hot tub” moulding knives from Logosol when building the sauna of his dreams. But instead of laying it down, he let the sauna ”barrel” stand on end. Now the family hopes that it soon will be ready to use, and Mikael sees the project as a prototype of a self-developed product.

“The basic idea was to build the frame of spruce, but when I visited the Nolia trade show I discovered that many sauna builders use pine, and I thought ‘So be it’. In addition, pine smells so good when you plane and mould it,” says Mikael Höglund, who has used his foursided planer/moulder PH360 for his project. The cylinder-shaped sauna will be a decorative element on the farm. When Fresh Cut visit Mikael, the sauna has newly been treated with transparent woodstains and will soon get its custom-made windows. The rounded shape is echoed in the elegant furnishings. The backrests are beautifully rounded and the aspen wood gives a smooth surface. “I felled the aspen four years ago in my own forest. I cut boards form the logs, and now they came in handy,” says Mikael Höglund.
