Wooden Hot

If you decide to make a wooden font yourself, you must first choose a suitable her material, since not every wood is suitable for the manufacture of containers , constantly in contact with water.

for such products suitable timber solid rock, which at a minimum absorbs moisture its structure and means , will serve as long as possible.

long been known that certain trees have favorable health-restoring capabilities that give a person extra vitality.Therefore, these are the breed chosen for the production not only the fonts, and other accessories that are used in the bath.

For trees that are peculiar to these qualities are larch, Siberian pine, beech and oak.


Larchwood - a great choice for all your bath accessories, as it has specific properties, beneficial effect on human health.Thus, it is seen that the flavors and extracts of larch increase overall body tone, stimulate protective responses, as well as cleanse and rejuvenate the skin.

Larch good resistance and extremely high temperatures, and their differences, have a t t Verde structure, so strong and durable, as perfectly resists the penetration of excessive moisture in thethe thickness of the tree.Thanks to a special antiseptic properties, it is not subject to rotting processes and the formation of mildew.


Cedar wood has an even greater density than the larch, and has in no way inferior characteristics impedance environment.Furthermore, it is the source of volatile, which inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold and eliminates the fungus colonies.

have fonts of wood and minuses - this complexity in operation and maintenance.We can not allow the drying of parts, so after use and washing capacity in it is necessary to pour a small amount of water and close the lid on top of it to evaporate more slowly, but constantly supported inside certain level of humidity.

to install wooden barrels, fonts must be prepared perfectly flat surface to prevent warping and deformation of the structure.If it is impossible to find such a site, you can align itself on the level of the font by placing the desired its side wooden lining required thickness.

oblivnye Hot

Also mounted on the floor and build into it for bathing fonts are manufactured and oblivnye font.They are typically used in cases where the space in the bath is not enough, and it is impossible to establish a full-fledged mini-pool where people could get.Others, oblivnye fonts are often installed in the Russian baths and saunas just for lovers take instant cold shower.

assembling wooden font

drawing fonts and materials for it manufacturing

Before buying materials for making fonts, you need to create high-quality assembly drawing this capacity with accurate calculations size and number of parts.

Drawing a wooden font (in this case, the dimensions are put in inches )

drawing wooden font (in this case, the dimensions are put in inches)

recommended to perform drawing in several projections - then it will be easier to calculate all parameters necessary components - parts of the walls, bottom, stairs.

Driving fitting font walls

scheme fit wall font

ladder rungs can be, as illustrated figure, or simply wooden beams.But in the latter case, for safety reasons, it is necessary that a ladder hooked on the edge of the font.

  • boards will be required for the sides and the bottom of the font, it supports under , internal benches and stairs.Commonly used material section 20 × 120 mm, with into account the fact that the edge of the board to be milled.The length of the board will depend on the height of the selected font.
  • For a font, needed supports will beam 100 × 100 or 150 × 150 mm.Its length will depend on the length and width font.Also
  • boards require metal bars and bolts, which are set to shrink the board.Meta pp to strips I have to choose flexible enough, but very durable.
  • for bonding individual parts and screwing the bottom legs will be needed screws. But we must take into account the fact that within the font should not be any metal parts.

Manufacturing of parts for wood font

Craft wooden elements to build a font not just as seems, as they will have to create a single firm, and at the same time - sealed structure thatIt will not occur in any location.Boards must be joined tightly together, creating a seamless, no cracks on the surface of the walls and on the bottom of the plane.In addition, the walls of the font should be tightly jointed with the bottom plane.

  • boards are cut into equal segments (in the drawing), equal to the height of the walls plus 100 ÷ 120 mm.This is the distance that the bottom of the font will rise above the floor.The lower part of the boards at the same time it closes the space against drafts.
  • Then, each of the boards at the edges milled.With a semi-circular shaped spike, on the other hand cut semi-circular groove having exactly the same range as that of the spike - they should be ideally suited to each other.
Boards for font walls are milled so that perfectly fit each other semicircular grooves

  • Boards for the bottom, too, must be milled by the connection tongue and groove with side facets, so that the floor surface is perfectly flat andI did not even have small slits.

  • Another option - board should be smooth, perfectly fitted, without tongued and grooved connections.

  • Further, on each of the boards, intended for the font of the walls, from the lower edge of the same distance is measured, for example, 100 mm.Above it observed accurate board thickness, which will be mounted from the bottom, for example 25 or 30 mm.
  • In marked area gently milled square groove depth of one third of the thickness of the board, in this case - 8 ÷ 10 mm.
  • finished parts produced from the calculated size, they are subjected to reflux Carefully sanding.So, for the walls of the board must be perfectly smooth on both sides, and the details of the bottom - at least on the side that faces inward font.

Stages mounting

Mounting principle wooden font similar to the manufacture of barrels.The difference in the process is in the form of wood and thickness of the elements forming the walls of the container obtained .Boards for font - completely smooth, while the barrels are narrowed to the bottom and the top open part capacity.

Self- assembling wooden font - the problem of high level of complexity !

self-assembly wooden font - the problem of high level of complexity!

font installation is carried out in stages, as follows:

  • first step is mounting board of the boards.He will then work piece, which will form the bottom of the font.Boards glued together joiner's glue and clamps are compressed to full readiness of the wooden shield.

  • After drying glue on the wood surface is marked and the desired figure is drawn with dimensions corresponding to the drawing.Then, very carefully sawed team bottom part.Errors when cutting this curved shape can not be tolerated - it is better not to hurry to avoid fatal errors.Edge finished bottom should be carefully handle with sandpaper to get rid of small burrs and irregularities.
  • Next, the resulting shield is necessary to further strengthen the underside of the bottom bars 20 × 30 mm.They fasten with screws, which in any case shall not pass through, otherwise their pointed ends will stick out in the floor font , which can lead to injury.

Additionally, you can secure the support bars, which will subsequently act as legs - they are installed along the edges of the bottom plane.

If purchased ready font, it is usually bundled bottom is divided into three parts.This is done only for the convenience of transportation.Details of sets collected in a plane as a whole, as mentioned above - with glue, screws, and the bars.

  • Further, for a comfortable draining of capacity closer to the bottom edge of the drilled hole of the desired diameter, in which is installed a siphon with a hose.

If you can not install the drain pipe because of lack of sewerage, the water can be pumped out of the font with a pump, but this version, however, will be more difficult and uncomfortable.

  • next step you can proceed to the assembly of the walls.To this end, the bottom of the lift on the desktop having the same height as the wall font - it will be easier to mount the board on the bottom edge of the shield.
  • done fitting beginning - on the edge of the shield firmly established one of the prepared boards.
