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.
