Sauna bench for the last year or so, and I want to show you how I made this bench first, let me give you a quick little tour. Let's take a quick look at my sauna. I've been working on it off and on for over a year it's coming along pretty nicely. I still have a lot of finish work to do on it. It's got some big posts and beams, as are all cedar. It's got two windows in the front and one in the door I'm going to have a little patio around here in the front I have some flagstones I'm going to put in on the inside I've put in a slate floor, and then I made these benches there.
All cedar with 2-inch slats they're resting on these 2x4 rails and these benches are movable, so I could remove them for cleaning or Brittany rearranging and then inside. We have a couple more windows, a couple tall, narrow ones on the side. I have a vent over here and here's another window down. Here's the heater. I still have to make a guard around that. Well, why don't we go ahead and take a look at step-by-step? How I made these benches first thing I did for the sauna bench was. I cut up 44 16 inch long two-by-twos. These are the use for the back. So on the bench next thing I did was cut to cedar two by fours. Both of these two by fours are pretty clean.
They don't really have any knots and I cut them to 88 inches, because that's how long. I want the total length of my Zona bench to be in my next step. I cut two end pieces for the bench there, both again cedar two by fours and so on either end. Now I have them capped off. I did cut those exactly the same length as my 2x2 slats that I'll be using. That will end up going between here. Now I'm marking each corner. I marked it about an inch in and now I'm marking about 7/8 of an inch down, and this is where I'll drill the holes and then put the screws in to form the frame. Here now, I'm using my marks and I'm using a half inch spade bit here and I'm just going to drill in a little bit this way.
If I want to put some caps in here to cover up the screws, I can do that later. So, just using my marks out email, I'm trying to go in about about a quarter inch on each one of these, I'm using my trusty rusty square here to make sure that I'm square and then I'll be using three-inch exterior screws, I'm putting them in at A little bit of an angle, I usually do that because if I had them out here on the edge, I'm more likely to split this, so I come in a little bit and then angle this way, just a little bit like that. So what I usually do is I check for square one more time get my boards links.
