Lethenty Mill Furniture, based at Lethenty Mill near Inverurie, will hold an Open Afternoon on Saturday, 6 November 2010 from 2.00-4.30pm. Lethenty Cabinetmakers, who share the mill building with Lethenty Mill Furniture, will also be opening their doors to members of the public.

"The Open Afternoon will give people a chance to come into Lethenty Mill and see the huge variety of activities that go on within the building," says Allan Fyfe, owner, Lethenty Mill Furniture. "Some of our evening class members will be making furniture in the workshops using traditional techniques, while outside there will be timber sawing demonstrations using the Wood-Mizer."

Lethenty Mill Furniture has a strong focus on the traditional furniture and hand tools associated with the North East of Scotland. Visitors will therefore also have a chance to browse through the company's 'Wood-Shop' and view a range of quality hand and vintage tools that are still used by Allan Fyfe today to make furniture.

Those who are keen on kitchens can take the opportunity to visit Lethenty Cabinetmakers' kitchen showrooms - and will also gain an insight into how these traditional, quality kitchens are crafted in the workshops on-site.

Entrance to the Lethenty Mill Open Afternoon is free and car parking is available on site.
