Great do you use clear cedar with no knots or knotty cedar?

Daniel we use only the finest western red  clear cedar for our cedar saunas.  The wood is also Kiln dried to a very specific moisture level such that it will not shrink over time.  Knotty wood in a sauna has many problems.  First, the knot will be a leak point.  Knots also tend to be full of sap which can burn the body in a hot sauna.  Knots also cause the wood to dry unevenly as they are denser and this will cause twisting and warping of the wood.
