Finnish Log Sauna Construction
September 16, 2019
Master builders Timo Alakesti and Marko Kemppainen will work in tandem with Calumet industrial arts teachers Robert Bohlsen and Corey Soumis, teaching how to build a dovetailed-corner log sauna using hand-hewn logs.
For only $500 per person, participants will have hands-on instruction for five hours per day (8 a.m. to 11 a.m., and 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.) for a total of 15 days at the Calumet Schools woodshop facility. Alakesti and Kemppainen will provide not only instruction on the construction methods, but also the history and traditions behind the methods.
The entire class will build one sauna during the three-week program. All materials and tools will be provided, and a maximum of six students from outside the Calumet Schools may attend.
