See how good it looks in a Sauna.
This is my favorite spot in the world, my very own sauna. A sanctuary where I relax and read magazines and books. Only one problem, many of my favorite magazines are bound with glue in the back. Well it get's pretty hot in a sauna which heats up the glue and makes the magazine fall apart. So to save my best reads I decided to make a Sauna Stick, one that would fit my pocket sized magazines.
The magazine is wedged in and locked by the spring at the top. This keeps the back tight and stops the pages from loosening up.
By the way, for testing I used my two favorite magazines Filter (Swedish) and Make books series.
Hanging outside the sauna:
At the end of the Sauna Stick there's a hook, just hang it outside till next time…
This is what a magazine will look like if read in a sauna without the Sauna Stick
