Wood workshop at Steneby

The furniture design department and associated facilities are located in bright rooms at the top in the so-called "workshop building”, overlooking the lake of Dals Långed.
Bench and machine shop are on the same level directly adjacent to sketching areas, seminar room and computer room, which enables a flexible and fast working approach. The department also keep a finishing room, spray paint box and a storage of wood. Each student has their own sketch table and a workbench at their disposal, as well as space for storage of materials.

Machine shop

The machine shop is well equipped and can be used by students as soon as they complete a mandatory machine course and successfully finish all tutorials.
Machines in the workshop are: Crosscut saw, rip saw, planer/surfacer, thicknesser, band saw, dimension saw, drill presses, square chisel mortiser, horizontal slot mortiser, spindle moulders, rounded tenons machine, tenon & mortise machine, overhead router, dovetail machine, veneer saw, veneer press, drum sander, vertical oscillating sander, long belt sander, marquetry saw, wood drying kiln, lathes, and different handmachines.
Students also have access to a CNC milling machine and a laser cutter / laser engraver.


We use solid wood from local sawmills from which we select birch, oak, alder and other woods we dry in our own drying kiln. This not only contributes to a low price of wood for the student, but it also creates a sustainable approach to the material wood and our surroundings.
Workshop manager is Björn Ekblom.
