WIDDERSHINS WOODWORKING

Widdershins, old english for counterclockwise. We at widdershins woodworking are turners, lathe workers, and we are turning back the tide on mass production, factory knockoffs and disposable goods. Our focus is on heritage products, goods worthy of becoming heirlooms, like our ornaments, pens, and decorations. Turning branches into beautiful figurines, we preserve a component of heritage craftsmanship that ought to never be forgotten.

What Our Fantastic Users Say

“Robin Gosse, of Widdershins Woodworking, is a true artist. His pens are works of excellence showing a keen eye to detail, proportion and balance. His compositions are beautiful creations, to be coveted and cherished, as they deserve a place among the most luxurious pens from the most established pen-makers. I can’t say enough about the craftsmanship, except to place yet another order.”

Bruce Douglass
Maine, USA

"I would like to express my extreme happiness and satisfaction I have in regard to the product I purchased and service I was shown by Mr Gosse and his company. Not only did he hand craft me a beautiful pen out of Newfoundland moose antler and exactly in the style I desired. He also shipped it to me in Alberta, Canada, and in short-order. This will definitely not be my only purchase. With the solid product and customer service I received they have made a lifetime customer."

Christopher Mullins
Alberta, Canada

“Robin is terrific to work with. He spent the time to understand exactly what I wanted my fountain pen to look like and write like. He updated me with work-progress photos and comments along the way. It was almost like being in his shop looking over his shoulder. The finished product is the star of my fountain pen collection.”
