Cedar Lumber & Paneling
We offer the largest variety of sauna quality lumber available on the internet! Proper sauna tongue and groove paneling woods are typically kiln dried to 8% moisture, which stabilizes wood fibers for sauna use. This greatly reduces warpage and shrinkage of boards once installed. The most popular sauna wood paneling types are tongue & groove white aspen and western red cedar. Complete your sauna wood paneling installation with a trim package of cove molding, baseboard and door trim in Cedar or Basswood.
Cedar sauna woods are strong, lightweight and generally do not warp or shrink over time. Red cedar provides a more comfortable and cooler sauna surface to sit and lean on, compared to more dense sauna woods. Cedar sauna wood naturally repels many bacteria, fungi and insects. All Cedar sauna woods have an aromatic scent, but the heartwood of Red Cedar trees has the strongest aroma and is popular in many American traditional saunas. Available in 1/2" and 11/16" thick. Our wide western red cedar sauna wood paneling is a clear grain premium grade (no knots). Each tongue & groove paneling board starts out as a 1"x4" milled to perfection.
Sauna wood trim will complete your sauna project, just finish cut for an exact fit. Cedar or Basswood types of trim will match most light or dark sauna paneling. Or select wood type to contrast with your sauna wood paneling, such as bright basswood trim against red cedar sauna paneling or darker cedar trim against white Aspen paneling. Trim for walls and ceiling is the Cove Molding type. Trim for sauna doors transitions from low profile inside edge to full thickness at outer edge. Cut door trim at 45 deg. angles on corners for seamless look.
