ATTENTION TO DETAIL

Graeme Winram
Graeme Winram
Graeme Winram
Owner & Cabinetmaker

Graeme has worked with Lethenty Cabinetmakers for more than thirty years. Since 2004 he has guided Lethenty Cabinetmakers to become the premier producer of bespoke kitchens and furniture in the North East of Scotland. He has a talent for carefully considered design and expects high standards from his team – both in terms of workmanship and in terms of customer service.

Like most business owners, he has to wear many hats. Life for Graeme is a constant juggling act between design work, meeting clients, running the workshop and marketing. Despite being mostly office bound, Graeme still makes time to get his hands dirty sometimes. He’s never happier than when sorting through a big stack of Aberdeenshire Elm boards, looking for the perfect piece to complete one of our furniture projects.

He lives with his wife and two sons at the foot of Bennachie.

Martyn Hart
Cabinetmaker

Martyn has spent his entire working life in cabinetmaking and brings a wealth of experience to our business. He’s spent 40 years making and restoring traditional and contemporary furniture – mostly in his native Norfolk.

He’s now relocated to an off grid croft near Huntly which is lovely in summer and challenging in winter. Martyn has quickly become a popular and valued part of our team.

He’s adapted well to life in Aberdeenshire – even though the Doric dialect can sometimes leave him baffled.

Phil Pratt
Cabinetmaker

Phil has been with Lethenty Cabinetmakers since 2000. He has developed into a highly skilled cabinetmaker. He is a master of the vacuum press and creates beautiful burr Elm curved panels made with great precision.

When not at Lethenty, he can be found restoring his fleet of three wheeled classic vehicles to the same exacting standards.

Whenever we have a particularly demanding project in the workshop, it usually ends up on Phil's bench. The secret ingredient behind Phil's talent is his ability to maintain a consistent focus.

Sandy Raffan
Cabinetmaker

Sandy is our main kitchen production man. He’s been building and installing Lethenty kitchens since 1999 and he’s now absolutely on the top of his game. Constructing a large kitchen is a complex business. For the work to progress smoothly and efficiently takes meticulous planning and focus. Not many people have Sandy’s talent to organise the flow of work efficiently. He likes a neat cutting list and he always knows where everything is. 

When he's not keeping everything neat and shipshape at Lethenty Cabinetmakers, he's the Vice Chairman of his local football club. He is married with two daughters.

Steve Gordon
Cabinetmaker

Steve Gordon is our wood finishing maestro. He has been here at Lethenty since 2005.

Every kitchen, study, table and chair we make is carefully and skilfully finished by Steve. Most furniture makers promote their work by emphasising the elegant design or the beautiful grain patterns of the timber but not many people make mention of the finish. That final microscopic layer of varnish, oil, paint, lacquer or wax is so important in how we perceive a piece of furniture – it’s what we smell, touch and see first of all.

Steve is a very conscientious and patient worker. He is married with three children.

Sam Morrison
Trainee Cabinetmaker

Trainee Cabinetmaker Sam is the newest member of the workshop team. Under the expert guidance of Phil and Sandy, he’s learning quickly. Sam has good attention to detail and his neat and meticulous nature is well suited for furniture making.

When he’s not carefully assembling cabinets, Sam cares for Harry, his five year old Clydesdale horse. Harry is 16.3HH and weighs in at 750Kg so he takes quite a bit of looking after.

"Thanks for an excellent job and, in particular, for your personal care and attention – makes all the difference."

"What a difference it makes, having such nice people working in your house."

"From the initial design stages, through to fitting out, we both feel that we have been included and gently guided in the design process in order to achieve our aim of a beautiful kitchen."

"I like the handles, and especially that all the slotted screws are at the same angle; that is exactly the sort of attention to detail that is important to me."

"Between you all, you have indeed made our house a home."

"It was very clear to us that these men were craftsmen and not just fitters by the care and attention to detail that was paid throughout every aspect of the installation. They do great credit to you and to your firm."
